FOI Request - Empty Properties Over 6months
I write to request a list of empty properties within your council area the have been empty for over 6 months. I would like to know the name of the Ltd company or PLC etc that owns the property, the date the property became vacant, the address and the rateable value and type of premises please.
I would explain to you that the council's non-domestic rates records only hold details of the person or organisation which is liable for the payment of rates. This may be the owner or the leaseholder, There is no indicator held on the non-domestic rates database which indicates the account holder's status.
In these circumstances I am unable answer your freedom of information request as there is no source of data upon which I may draw on to provide a response therefore this information is exempt under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002; information not held.
