You can apply to Devon Registration Service to register a room or rooms in your property to be approved under the Marriage Act 1994 and the Civil Partnership Act 2004.

Before you start

  • You have read and understood the Guidance notes
  • After you have submitted your application the property is inspected by a member of the service
  • Provided that there are no objections following a period of public consultation (listed on our website), a licence for three years will be issued
