Dear Mr Mann,

To to confirm, any legal charges/debentures which LCC have registered against properties registered with the Land Registry.

For example, a legal charge was taken out against ELITE SPORT TECHNOLOGIES LTD (0791 3083 0001) on the 19th Jan 2015.

Yours sincerely,

Mr M Dean

Mann, Roger, Liverpool City Council

Dear Mr Dean, I have checked with our property section and the council does not have a single register of such charges, so a check for them would require examination of all our property records (over 19,000 in number) which would exceed the cost limits within the FOI Act. We will respond formally to your information request accordingly.

Dear Mann,

Many thanks for your response, however, I find it difficult to understand as to why the Council would not keep records for all loans it has given out to private companies? Failure to do so would make it impossible to file accurate accounts, would it not?

I will forward my concerns over to Max Caller.

Yours sincerely,

Mr M Dean

Dear Mr Dean.

 

Thank you but your request (which I clarified with you) was  for "any
legal charges/debentures which LCC have registered against properties
registered with the Land Registry", which would include items such as

restrictive covenants (e.g., restrictions on the use of the property),
positive covenants (e.g., obligations to maintain a fence or driveway),
easements and mortgages (including small mortgages to individuals) and
would require a check of over 19,000 council records and thereby exceed
the cost limit under the FOI Act.

 

If you wish to know “what loans [the Council]  has given out to private
companies” then that is a further and different question, shall I treat
this as a new FOI request for that specific information?

 

Regards

This is a typical responce from LCC who continue to deflect from all genuine and serious FOI's requests.

The vast corruption within LCC will only be exposed externally sadly.

Too much inhouse blackmailing going on from the very top.

I have every faith in Max Caller.

Stay determined........
