Reporting an Empty Home

    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 an empty home within the Stafford Borough then please email

    Please include the following information:-

    • Address of the empty property
    • Condition of the property
    • Any further relevant information

    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

    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.
