Dear Loomer, Kate,

If it is a HMO property the landlord would be registered with his address.

Yours sincerely,

Janis V

Loomer, Kate, Camden Borough Council

Dear Mr V

I am sorry if our previous letter did not make it clear - Benefits
regulations do not require us to hold the addresses of landlords,
therefore we cannot answer your query.

Kate Loomer
PA, Assistant Director of Finance (Revenues)

Telephone: 020 7974 5025

Dear Loomer, Kate,

You could easily find which properties have tenants on housing benefit and looking at the HMO license, you can find the landlord's address. Is this true or not?

Yours sincerely,

Janis V

Dear Mr V

The information is not available on the Benefits system.

Are you interested in HMOs or in landlords who are living overseas?
Your original query asked about addresses of landlords living overseas
to whom Housing Benefit is paid, and did not mention HMOs at all. If
you want information regarding addresses of landlords of HMOs then
please submit a new Freedom of Information request which can then be
referred to the appropriate department for response.

Regards.

Dear Loomer, Kate,

I am interested in landlords based overseas who receive housing benefit. I was asking you why, using the benefits system and the HMO license system together, you could not obtain this information.

Yours sincerely,

Janis V
