Empty homes can have a negative impact on the community and the value of the owner’s property. The longer that a home is left empty the more likely it is to attract vandalism, anti-social behaviour and fall into disrepair.
If you wish to report the existence of an empty home that is not yet causing any problems, please contact our Housing Standards Team on 01785 619000 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
You can find out more about what the Council can do to deal with empty properties by visiting our Open, Derelict and Empty Properties page.
If you are the owner of an empty home and would like to know what help we can provide in bringing it back into use, please visit our empty homes assistance page.
