Empty homes

Bring empty homes back in use

Everyone can benefit from an empty home being brought back into use. You could be better off financially as well as giving someone a much needed new home.

When you leave a home empty, you could also face higher insurance costs, higher Council Tax and higher security costs.

Download the leaflet 'Your empty home - unlocking its potential' for more information on how to bring your empty home back into use by letting or selling it.

If you are worried about an empty home in your area, please contact your neighbourhood office.
