What will the council do about an empty property if I report it?

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

The council has an empty homes policy which sets out what action we are taking to tackle empty homes in the borough and to bring empty homes back into use.

When an empty property is reported to us we will address the empty property following the steps set out in the policy. If we don’t already know about the property, the first steps are likely to include assessing the condition of the property and trying to find the owner of the property.
