Q1,3 &7  The information you requested is available here.

Q2 We are unable to provide the dates during which the the building was vacant as we only hold records of those properties which are currently vacant please see information attached at bullet point 1. In accordance with Section 17 the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, we can confirm that this information is not held in the requested format.

Q4 We do not have any specific arrangements for security, although one of our maintenance officers does carry out monthly walk round of properties when in the general area to identify any security issues such as broken windows etc.. As this is done on this ad-hoc basis we cannot provide a breakdown of this cost. In accordance with Section 17 the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, we can confirm that this information is not held in the requested format.

Q5&6 Please see information attached at bullet point 1.  Some of this spend was attributed to upgrading rather than just responsive maintenance.
