Dear S Chapman,

We can now confirm the following:

The last numbers published are: 21,784 housing stock, with additional
9,101 leaseholders and freeholders who pay service charge. This gives a
total of 30885, 29.5% of which are leaseholders/freeholders with service

Once again we apologise for failing to answer this part of the question
before and for the long delay in fulfilling this internal review.

Kind regards
