FOI Request - Buildings (Recovery of Expenses) (Scotland) Act 2014
As you are, doubtless, aware the above Act amended the Building (Scotland) Act 2003 to provide for expenses incurred by local authorities, in connection with notices served or work carried out under that Act, to be recovered by way of charging order.
I am interested in determining the effect of this Act across Scotland. I would therefore be obliged if you would answer the following -
1) Has your Council used the powers given to it by this Act?
2) How much money has been recovered by the use of these powers?
I would be further obliged if you would give further details of each recovery case, including the location of building, type of building, type of repair needed and whether the building was owned by an individual, a local business or a national company.
