NOTICE OF REFUSAL
The information requested in respect of 4 would require us to manually check 670 accounts, this would far exceed the time limit set out by the Information Commissioner therefore under S12 of the Freedom of information Act 2000 which provides an exemption from the obligation to comply with a request for information if the estimated costs of complying with that request would exceed the prescribed appropriate limit.
We estimate that the costs of complying with your request would exceed the appropriate limit by a significant amount.
For this reason we feel unable to comply with this request.
Please note that the Property Reference Number relates to the property, not the account number. This reference is available on the internet, for example the gov.uk website regarding a property's banding.
