Report an empty home



Empty homes create problems for owners, neighbours, communities and Local Authorities.

Empty properties can:

  • Look unattractive and ugly if they are boarded up
  • Create environmental issues
  • Be a danger if dilapidated
  • Reduce the value of the neighbour's property by as much as 10%
  • Attract antisocial activity, including arson and the increased fear of crime in the area
  • Discourage further investment in the area leading to neighbourhood decline
  • Result in more 'green field' development as housing pressure increases

We can help bring empty homes back into use.
