Dear Mr O'Gorman

Thank you for your recent request made under the Freedom of Information
Act. Please find Wirral Borough Council’s response provided by Strategic
Housing as follows:

We have checked with Wirral Partnership Homes (T/A Magenta Living) and can
confirm that they are not currently letting any of their properties as
private landlords.  We are however aware that Magenta Living are working
with the housing organisation Torus to set up a company which will be
known as Bamboo Lettings, and that this company will let private rented
properties once it has been set up. 


We have contacted Magenta Living and have been informed that it is planned
that any profits raised through this company will help to fund Magenta
Living in developing properties to rent, as Housing Associations need to
look for new ways to fund their development programmes in light of the
removal of government grant subsidies.   If you require further
information about Bamboo Lettings, you would need to contact Magenta
Living.  Ways to contact Magenta Living can be found by clicking this
link: [1] 


In terms of any covenants placed on the properties at the time of stock
transfer to Wirral Partnership Homes, in order to provide a comprehensive
response to you, our solicitor has checked through the transfer documents,
and provided the attached document which includes all covenants included
in the transfer documentation for your information.


We trust that you find this information of assistance.


Yours sincerely,


Tracy O'Hare
