If a premises licence lapses due to the death, incapacity or
insolvency of the licence holder, someone with an interest in the
premises or someone connected to the person who previously held the
licence, can submit an Interim Authority Notice (IAN).

the notice is then the holder of the licence. An IAN remains in
force for a period of three months during which time an application
to transfer the licence can be made.
