Estate Leaseholders and Freeholders

Leaseholders & Freeholders


The Council will purchase the properties of leaseholders and freeholders on the estate at the time when their property is required for demolition.

Properties will be acquired through a negotiated private treaty process led by the Council’s appointed surveyors Capita.

To ensure that all properties can be acquired by the required demolition dates, the Council will apply to the Secretary of State for compulsory purchase powers. If granted, these powers will only be used as a last resort if private treaty negotiations are not successful.

It is the intention of the Council and BMLLP to conclude negotiations with all property owners before the CPO comes into force.

If you would like to discuss the private treaty process please contact Aidan Fletcher-Watts at GVA on:
