Dear East Renfrewshire Council,
We are looking to buy vacant and rundown residential property in the East Renfrewshire area from owners and tired landlords. We aim to get the properties lived in and to help first-time buyers get on the property ladder.
I am writing to request under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 for information on vacant residential property and Landlords in East Renfrewshire.
Specifically, I would like the following information:
1. The number of vacant residential properties in East Renfrewshire, how long they have been empty, addresses of the properties and if possible, the contact information of the registered owners.
2. Information on landlords with properties in East Renfrewshire, landlord registration numbers and contact information, number of Units (including those with HMO Licences).
3. Details of any vacant commercial property in East Renfrewshire for sale owned by the council or privately owned, specifically land and property suitable for development to residential housing.
I understand some of this will be sensitive information and I can assure you that it will only be viewed by myself for research purposes. If there is any data protection registration required first to handle this information like ICO you can let me know, and I can forward proof when registered.
I would like this information in electronic form, preferably as a CSV file.
If my request is denied in whole or in part, I ask that you justify all deletions by reference to specific exemptions of the act.
Please let me know you have received this.
If there any problems or you need more information, please get in touch.
Dear Mr Donlon
