Dear Valuation Office Agency,

You have NOT answered my Question. I did Not ask how many HMO properties that Local Authorities had disaggregated.

My request was addressed to the VOA in respect of how many decisions they made to Aggregate HMO rooms, when notification of any Building or Planning changes have brought such properties to the VOA's attention.

Yours faithfully,

Chris Daniel

Dear Valuation Office Agency,

Thank you for the statistics of " 74 HMO properties being 'Aggregated ' between 2019 and 2022. "

I appreciate that you cannot disclose information that might identify a person or premises, but if any of the Aggregated decisions were made upon successful appeal to the valuation tribunal, those cases would be in the public domain and I would ask for the reference numbers of such.

In regard to HMO Aggregation decisions that were taken by the VOA, can you please give general reasons - rationale for those HMO's so Aggregated.

I ask this also with a new request of the number of decisions to Disaggregate HMO's by the VOA in the last 3 year period.because

Yours sincerely,

Chris Daniel
