We require a principal officer to manage two small teams of officers who carry out a diverse range of duties relating to the ownership of land held by the Council as a Housing authority and the general functions of the Leasehold Services Section.

The teams manage post sales landlord functions, including the processing of:

  • requests from leaseholders to carry out structural alterations;
  • statutory requests to extend leases;
  • requests for access and compound licences and agreements over housing land to facilitate private developments;
  • the investigation of title deeds to resolve issues relating to land ownership rights and boundary disputes; and,
  • the management of pre-assignment of lease enquiries.

You will liaise with the housing development team in identifying housing sites and buildings in order to evaluate options for future use including disposal or redevelopment, provide advice to housing management officers on issues which arise concerning land ownership matters and supervise a team of officers who undertake pre and post tender major works procurement functions.

You will need to have a wide ranging knowledge of legal interests relating to land ownership, including freehold, leasehold, easements and licences and the ability to deal with issues relating to land ownership within a local authority setting and particularly in relation to land held by a local authority as a residential landlord. Staff supervision experience would also be desirable.
