In accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 names and addresses have been withheld under the following two exemptions:

Section 31(1)(a) - law enforcement (prevention and detection of crime)

Havant Borough Council will not disclose address details into the public domain where they relate to deceased’s empty properties as the property is likely to be unoccupied and might still contain the deceased's personal papers and effects.  The council does not believe it to be in the public interest to disclose information relating to empty properties prior to a full and thorough securing of the assets of the estate as undertaken by Treasury Solicitors.  Additionally, giving out the names of the deceased taken with other information easily available i.e. the electoral roll, telephone directory entry, etc would make identifying properties fairly easy.

Section 21 – information accessible to applicant by other means

Although confirmation that Havant Borough Council holds some of the information requested, the council does not accept that it holds the information in its own right, but on behalf of the Treasury Solicitors' department.   Some details of the estate of those persons who have died have been passed onto the Treasury Solicitors' Department can be accessed via:

All deaths have to be registered with the Register Office.
