Dear Mx Panchal

Thank you for your response.

In the section Requests submitted by organisations (paragraphs 35 – 39 of Recognising a request made under the Freedom of Information Act (Section 8)) it says that
35. If the request is from a company, then the authority should accept either its full registered name or a name that exists as a legal entity (such as a trading name) as valid.
37. …companies’ names should generally be accepted at face value, but in any case where the authority has reason to verify the authenticity of the company, it should check Companies House …. to clarify whether it is a genuine organization.
38. Requests from unincorporated bodies such as campaign groups or clubs are also valid and in most cases should be accepted at face value.
39. We therefore recommend that authorities adopt a lower and more informal test for determining whether a name provided by an unincorporated body is genuine.

The homeowner council is one of Southwark's main forums for homeowner participation. It acts as a link between local area housing forums and the council and advises them both on borough-wide matters that affect homeowners (https://www.southwark.gov.uk/home-owners...). It is body with a constitution that has been approved by a Cabinet Member.

The full name that of the company asking for the information is the LEASEHOLDERS ASSOCIATION OF SOUTHWARK 2000 (LAS2000), Company number 07073531 (https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/compa...).

We believe that both of these will give you the assurance you need that you have the full names of both organisations asking for this information.
Yours sincerely,
London Borough of Southwark's HOMEOWNER COUNCIL and the LEASEHOLDER ASSOCIATION of SOUTHWARK 2000
