Vacant properties & out of town landlords

Prash Reddy made this Freedom of Information request to Surrey Heath Borough Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Surrey Heath Borough Council,

I am looking for data on Vacant\Empty properties in the area.

We are also looking for details on out of town landlords (Can I request the correspondence address for the landlord if you have these?)

We buy houses and bring them back to life enabling more properties back into the rental sector.
We want to offer the vendors a solution to this and offer our services. I understand that many councils hold this sort of data?

I would like to understand if the local authority has an Empty Property Strategy, the extent of empty property in the area,
how the local authority plans to deal with it and the names and contact details of officers within the council who are responsible for it.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Prash Reddy

Breda Lowe, Surrey Heath Borough Council

Dear Mr Reddy

Thank you for your request for information which was received on 04/01/2016. I will deal with it under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. The
FOI Act requires us to respond promptly and in any case no later than 20 working days. I therefore aim to respond by at the latest 01/02/2016, unless it is
necessary to consider the public interest test. If this is the case, I will write to you again explaining that this will be happening. We are then
required to provide a full response within such a time as is reasonable in the circumstances.

In some circumstances a fee may be payable and if that is the case, I will let you know. A fee notice will be issued to you, and you will be
required to pay before we will proceed with your request.

If you have any queries about this email, please do not hesitate to contact me. It would be helpful if you would quote the reference number in the
subject line in any future correspondence.

Yours sincerely
