Freedom of Information Request

Number of Incidences of Property Gifted to Another or Property Registered in Another Name

Received: 7 February 2020

Between 2014/15 to the date of receipt of this request: on how many occasions has the council discovered individuals who have gifted their property to someone else and/or changed the registered owner of their property to the name of someone else - which has subsequently been deemed as a deliberate deprivation of assets - when the council has conducted a financial assessment when considering entering into a deferred payment agreement (DPA)?

2) In the same time period, how many cases has the council taken individuals to courts over unpaid debt relating to DPAs? Please specify where possible instances when court action has been taken by the council following non-payment of remaining debts 90 days after the death of the care receiver? Please state the amount of outstanding debt in each case and, where possible, please state the outcome of each legal action: whether the council has won its case and any monies recovered.

I would like a copy of the information and would prefer for it to be sent by email if possible.

If any part of the information requested is covered by one or more of the absolute exemptions in the Act please treat this request as a request for that part of the information which is not covered by the absolute exemption.
 If you need further details in order to identify the information requested or a fee is payable please let me know as soon as possible.

If you are of the view that there may be further information of the kind requested but it is held by another public authority please let me know as soon as possible. Please continue with this application as quickly as possible.

I believe that the information requested is required in the public interest for the following reasons:
1. To uphold public confidence that the council has thorough policies on the type of information it is obliged to record
