We are informed by Derbyshire Dales District Council that this home falls within Council Tax Band C which is currently £1889 per annum.
The Derbyshire Dales Occupancy Clause refers to restrictions placed on the deeds of properties situated within the Peak District National Park. The clause applies to former council owned properties that have passed into private ownership through ‘right to buy’, discounted properties and other schemes under Section 37 of the Housing Act 1985.
Under the Housing Act 1985, the effect of these restrictions mean that the purchaser must meet certain criteria to be allowed to buy the property. This can also affect the selling of the property as fewer people may meet the criteria and be able to buy it. Buyers will also need a letter from the District Council stating that they either meet the specified criteria or that they have been granted permission to purchase the property.
The Derbyshire Clause is permanent and stays with the property on any subsequent sale. Therefore, any future purchasers must also satisfy the same criteria or obtain permission from the District Council.
There are currently 863 properties within the Derbyshire Dales District which contain the Derbyshire Clause that are former District Council properties within the Peak District National Park boundary.
