Sitting Tenant Option for the Aylesbury Estate

We're waiting for J.Bos to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Southwark Borough Council,

When the Aylesbury Estate regeneration buy backs started, if a leaseholder sold back to the council using the Sitting Tenant Option, they would be paid two thirds of their property's market value.

By 2009 the amount paid to a leaseholder if they used the Sitting Tenant Option had reduced to around half of the market value of their property.

1. How many properties in Phase 1a, 1b and 1c were bought back by the council using the Sitting Tenant Option in the following years:

a. 2008?
b. 2009?
c. 2010?

2. Please state the percentage of market value paid to the leaseholders for their properties in each of those years?

3. In my FOI request 685034, Aylesbury estate acquisitions from March 1st 2016, was the price agreed for the purchase of properties shown in the schedule provided, the full market value or was it only the Sitting Tenant values paid for the properties in question 1?

Yours faithfully,

J.Bos
