Turn your empty property into a home
Report an empty property
Empty property is bad news for everyone
Empty properties can deteriorate quickly and attract anti social behaviour like fly-tipping, squatters, vandalism, drug taking and arson. Neighbours have an increased fear of crime, and ugly boarded up properties blight the surrounding area and can devalue surrounding homes by up to 18%.
It’s a worry
You may be losing sleep worrying about who is breaking in tonight.
People need homes
Bringing your property back into use creates a secure home for someone who desperately needs it.
If your property has been empty for more than 6 months, we would like to work with you to bring your empty property back into use.
Contact the Empty Homes Officer today for an initial discussion, free advice and support.
Tel: 01248 750057 and ask for the Empty Homes Officer or register with our My Account portal to report an empty home using our online form.
