John Hanlon made this Freedom of Information request to Valuation Office Agency

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Valuation Office Agency,

Records show on your website that 10-12 Forth street, Liverpool 20 used to generate in excess of £50,000 per year in business rates. Then in sometime around 2017 these rates were removed as the building was in disrepair. Therefore, can you please supply the following information:

1. Who classed this property as being in disrepair?

2. Did anybody from Liverpool City Council ever contact your Office to have the business rates removed under their any powers they have?

3. If the answer is yes to question 3, please provide their name?

4. Please provide all correspondence/emails between Liverpool City Council and your Office over 10-12 Forth Street, L20?

Many thanks in advance.

Yours faithfully,

John Hanlon

Valuation Office Agency

Dear Valuation Office Agency,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Valuation Office Agency's handling of my FOI request '10-12 Forth Street Liverpool L20', due to your refusal to provide information which is in the interest of the public.

The said property is not in a state of disrepair as claimed on your web page and is currently being used by a local construction company. This in turn is being rented to the construction company by Liverpool City Council.

Therefore, I would ask you to reconsider your response.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/1...

Yours faithfully,
