Empty Homes

If you own an empty property you are losing potential revenue and paying additional costs

As well as being a financial  worry, empty properties can attract squatters, vermin and may also become a target for vandals and other anti-social behaviour.

Leaving a property empty long term is likely to have negative impacts upon the property itself and the wider community as a whole.

If you have an empty property, there are a number of options open to you. For advice, or if you are worried about a vacant property in your neighbourhood, please contact our Empty Homes Officer on 01202 454893 or you can report it online.

Due to Data Protection legislation we can’t provide information about privately owned empty homes but the Empty Homes Officer may be able to contact the owner on your behalf if you are interested in a particular property.
