Reason for Demolition
Richmond Housing Partnership intends to demolish the Relevant Premises in Ham Close, a housing estate in Ham, Richmond, in order to redevelop and regenerate the site. The project will generate new homes for existing households, additional homes including affordable homes, new community facilities and associated amenities, landscaping, roads and parking.
Richmond Housing Partnership Limited intends to demolish the Relevant Premises by 27 October 2028, being no more than seven years after the date of service of this Notice and being a reasonable period within which to carry out the proposed demolition.
Date by which the Initial Demolition Notice shall no longer have effect
Richmond Housing Partnership Limited will be serving an Initial Demolition Notice upon the tenants of the Relevant Premises. This Notice will cease to be in force on 27 October 2028, unless previously revoked under the provisions of paragraph 3 of Schedule 5A of the Housing Act 1985.
Effect of the Initial Demolition Notice
Whilst this Notice is in force Richmond Housing Partnership Limited 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.
However, Right to Buy claims submitted to Richmond Housing Partnership Limited for any of the Relevant Premises whilst this Notice is in force will still be processed by Richmond Housing Partnership Limited, so that, if the demolition plans cannot be implemented, the application can be completed. This Notice does not prevent a tenant of any of the Relevant Premises submitting a Right to Buy claim.
Should Richmond Housing Partnership Limited subsequently serve a Final Demolition Notice in respect of the Relevant Premises, the Right to Buy will not arise in respect of the Relevant Premises while that Notice is in force and any existing claim will cease to be effective.
Right to Compensation
There may be a right to compensation under section 138C of the Housing Act 1985 in respect of certain expenditure incurred in relation to any existing Right to Buy claim. Any claim for compensation should be served on Richmond Housing Partnership Limited within the period of three months beginning with the date when the Notice comes into force ("the Operative Date"). The Operative Date of this Notice is 28 October 2021 being the date on which the Initial Demolition Notice was served on the tenants of the Relevant Premises.
