Dear Wakefield City Council,

I am looking for:

1) a list of names and addresses of Landlords who own property within the Wakefield area
2) then out of the list above which landlords live outside of the area themselves i.e. they live 'out of town'.

We buy houses quickly so we want to contact landlords who may be tired of being a landlord and offer a solution for them.

I know this is public data and it can be requested, so could you please supply me with this data?

I look forward to hearing from you,

Yours faithfully,

Laura

Dear Ms Davison,
 
Freedom of Information Act 2000 - Request for Information
 
I am writing in respect of your recent enquiry for information held by the
Authority under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act.
 
Please find the response to your request below.
 
We do not hold a list of landlords who own property in the Wakefield area
and therefore are unable to provide it.
 
Council Tax is charged according to a hierarchy and usually the person(s)
living in a property will be the liable person(s), but sometimes it will
be the owner of the property who will be liable to pay. The owner will be
liable if:
there is no-one resident; or the property is in multiple occupation. For
example, a house shared by a number of different households who all pay
rent separately; or the people who live in the property are all under the
age of 18; or the property is accommodation for asylum seekers; or the
people who are staying in the property are there temporarily and have
their main homes somewhere else; or the property is a care home, hospital,
hostel or women's refuge.
 
Therefore, as we are primarily interested in the person living in the
property we do not necessarily record if the property is rented or the
landlord's details.  Additionally any landlord details we hold we may have
been provided by the tenant or we may have gained from another third party
source such as the Land Registry, therefore they may not be up to date and
cannot be relied upon.
 
I am sorry that we have been unable to assist you further on this
occasion, but please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any
further queries regarding this matter.
 
Yours sincerely
