Issue details

Extension of leases on leasehold flats owned by the Council

The purpose of this report is to highlight the short unexpired term remaining on the leases of 11 residential flats owned by the Council, and to suggest a statutory basis for extending the leases.

Retaining these properties in Council ownership could save the payment of dilapidation costs to freeholders and would assist in long term planning.
