If a property is left empty and unattended its condition will often decline and can attract problems that disturb neighbours. Empty homes often lead to many complaints about nuisance to us.
We have adopted an Empty Homes Strategy to deal with any empty home that has been empty for 2 years or more. You can download this strategy from our related downloads section.
In some circumstances, we award empty homes grants to the owners of empty properties to help with the costs of repairs and improvements needed to bring a property into a condition fit for renting.
