Empty properties

About empty properties

Empty properties may:

  • Cause a nuisance for neighbourhoods
  • Become a target for vandals 
  • Attract antisocial behaviour
  • Deteriorate faster than occupied homes

These problems can also affect the value of neighbouring properties.

We offer several options to help owners bring their properties back into use. We do this to help reduce the pressure of keeping and maintaining an empty property and to enable you to get the best financially out of the property.

By bringing a property back into use, you can be a part of providing much-needed quality homes for people and families in the borough.
