With regards to the purchaser the following exemption is applicable.

As the information you have requested is accessible by other means I have not provided you with a copy of the information and will rely on Section 21 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.  You should therefore consider this a refusal for your request.

I have provided an explanation to this exemption below.

Section 21 (1) - Information accessible by other means

Information which is reasonably accessible to the applicant is exempt information.

This information can be gained from the Land Registry upon payment of a fee.

Section 21(2)(a) states that information may be regarded as reasonably accessible to the applicant “even though it is accessible only on payment”.
