Empty properties

Leaving a property empty can put it at risk of vandalism and arson, and even without these problems an empty property is likely to deteriorate and reduce in value, thereby putting your investment at risk.

We have developed an empty homes policy to try and reduce the number of long term empty homes in the district.

We do not offer any grants or loans for home owners of empty properties. However, if you would like information on bringing the property back into use or on finding a tenant, please contact:
