Dear Nottingham City Council,

Yours faithfully,

Freedom Of Information, Nottingham City Council

Dear Claire

On the 16 September Nottingham City Council received the following Freedom of Information request from you:

“I am looking for buy to let properties in the Nottinghamshire area. Do you operate the scheme whereby you will use the property to house council tenants?"

The council have reviewed your request carefully, in accordance with section 1(3) of the Act in its current form your request is considered to be unclear or ambiguous. The council has a duty under section 16(1) of the Act to provide advice and assistance, as far as is reasonable to do so, before the council can consider your request we will require some clarification from you.

Unfortunately your request is a bit confusing, a tenant of a privately owned property would not be a "council tenant" so the answer to your question would be 0. If you are asking if households who present themselves as homeless are housed in private accommodation then the answer is yes in some circumstances. Further information regarding homelessness and temporary accommodation can be found here:

If the above does not answer your query could you review your request and resubmit it in light of the above.

The council is under no further obligation to respond to your request until your clarification has been provided. Please note your request has been closed, upon receipt of your clarified request a new reference number and 20 working day time limit will be applied the next working day after the council receives your clarification.

The council trust the above is clear but if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Regards
