Dear Mrs Metcalfe

 

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST REF: 2017-0318

 

I am responding to your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000,
which we received on 5 March 2017, for information held by the Council.
You requested:

 

External Bankruptcy Solicitors for Council Tax

 

Please provide the names and addresses of all external solicitors used to
carry out bankruptcy work on behalf of your council in relation to council
tax for domestic properties, both past and present.

 

If you use in-house solicitors to carry out this work please provide their
names.

 

Should bankruptcy proceedings be contemplated we would use our in-house
Legal section. With regard to providing the names of the solicitors, RBKC
have not referred any cases so no names are available.

 

Complaints

 

I trust this has satisfied your request. Should you be unhappy with the
handling of your request, the Council has an internal complaints process
for handling FOIA complaints. Complaints are reviewed by the Chief
Solicitor and Monitoring Officer or her nominee. A form is available from
our website to lodge your complaint
[1]http://www.rbkc.gov.uk/councilanddemocra...
Please contact us if you do not have website access and we can provide you
with a copy of the form. Following this review, should you still be
unhappy with how your information request has been handled, you have a
further right to appeal to the Information Commissioner who is responsible
for ensuring compliance with FOIA.  

 

Yours sincerely

Dear Mrs. Metcalfe,

 

Council Tax advised that they would use internal solicitors if bankruptcy
proceedings were to be contemplated. However, they haven’t had to refer
any cases so the information you ask for is not held.

 

Yours sincerely
