Privately owned empty homes
Empty homes spoil the appearance of a neighbourhood and can lead to vandalism, littering, damp, vermin, and fire. Our empty homes scheme can help you unlock the value of your empty property.
We offer a range of services designed to make privately owned empty properties available for housing again.
When we receive notification that a property has been empty for 18 months or more, we will work with the owners to bring that property back into use. They will be offered advice, support and guidance about various options for the property.
In extreme cases where the owner chooses not to work with us, or an owner cannot be found, we will enforce a compulsory purchase order as a last resort.
