Dear Home Sales HfH, dear Paul,

Many thanks for your very helpful and detailed response.

I have two further questions, I understand that there was no data for 2 bedroom flat prices in N17 in January 2016. Is there any data avaliable for 2 bedroom flat prices for right to buy flats in N17 or within a 3 mile radius of N17 for the period between September 2015 and March 2016? Also, could you please clarify whether the prices you have included exclude anyou applicable right to buy discount (I. E. The discount amount is to be discounted from the prices you have provided) .

additional, could you please let me know whether any of the price decreases (following a review) were due to damp and mould on the walls?

Many thanks for all your help and time.

Yours sincerely,

Seyda Houghton-Jones

Seyda Houghton-Jones

Dear Home Sales HfH,

Many thanks again for your response, could I finally ask for the valuations provided for any 2 bedroom flats within a 3 mile radius of N17 from August 2015 to 31 July 2016 within the right to buy scheme (before the deduction of the relevant discount).

Finally, could you please advise as to whether the results of independent building surveys and valuations have been taken into consideration in the evaluation of the District Valuer where the valuation provided by Homes for Haringey has been contested?

Many thanks for your responses, they are much appreciated.

Many thanks and kind regards,

Yours sincerely,

Seyda Houghton-Jones

Dear Mrs Houghton-Jones

     

LBH/5557916

Freedom of Information Act Request

 

I thank you for your email dated the 5^th August.     

 

The information requested is below.

 

The average valuation of a two bedroom flat in N17 between the 1^st August
2015 and the 31^st December 2015 was £217,000. There is no comparable data
for the period between January 2016 and July 2016.

 

The District Valuer does not undertake a detailed site survey, building
survey or inspection of covered, unexposed or inaccessible parts of the
property nor are the services tested. If the District Valuer deems further
investigation to be necessary, specialist reports will be obtained.

 

The District Valuer’s valuation comprises a departure from the RICS
Valuation Standards. For Right to Buy valuations and determinations of
value the basis of valuation will be in accordance with section 127
Housing Act 1985 as amended by the Housing and Planning ACT 1986 and the
Housing Act 1996 (Consequential Amendments) Order 1997.

 

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me on 020 8489
