In respect of an Initial Demolition Notice
Intention to Demolish
We, Westlea Housing Association (part of GreenSquare Group), hereby give you
formal notice pursuant to paragraphs 2(2) 13 of Schedule 5 to the Act of our
intention to demolish, 1, 3, 4, 5, 7 and 8 St Michael's Close, Lyneham, Wiltshire
SN15 4NZ ("the Premises").
Reasons for Demolition
We intend to demolish the Premises because we intend to redevelop the area.
Proposed Demolition Date
We intend to demolish the Premises by no later than 22 February 2025.
Operation and expiry of the Initial Demolition Notice
This notice will remain in force until 22 February 2025, unless revoked or
otherwise terminated under or by virtue of paragraph 3 of Schedule 5A of the
Housing Act 1985 or extended.
Effects of this Notice
Whilst the Notice is in force Westlea Housing Association Association will not be
under an obligation to make such a grant as is mentioned in Section 138(1) of the
Housing Act 1985 in respect of any claim to exercise the right to buy in respect of
any of the Relevant Premises.
This Notice does not prevent the making of a claim under the right to buy or the
taking of any steps under this part in connection with any such claim up to the
point where section 138(1) would otherwise operate in relation to the claim or the
operation of that provision in most circumstances where the notice ceases to be
in force. However, if we subsequently serve a final demolition notice in respect
of the Relevant Premises, the right to buy will not arise in respect of it while that
notice is in force and any existing claim will ceased to be effective.
Right to Compensation
The Housing Act 1985, Section 138 confers a right to compensation in respect of
certain expenditure. This means that Section 138 of the Act confers on you a right
to compensation in respect of legal and other fees and other professional costs
and expenses paid by you in connection with the exercise by you of the preserved
right to buy.
For and on behalf of:
