Dear Fiona Hiron,

Thank you for your reply. Could you clarify the circumstances in which you received 59 litigation cases due to damp or mould, but without owning any housing stock?

Yours sincerely,

Graham Atherton

Hiron, Fiona, Horsham District Council

Dear Mr Atherton,

I possibly misunderstood your question. If you were referring to council owned properties, the answer is 0.
