Owners of empty properties
Houses that are left empty are a wasted resource as there are many people looking for somewhere to live. There are a number of support options for owners to bring their empty properties back into use.
Interest free loans to help renovate empty properties
There are a number of financial schemes that can help you fund repairs to an empty property. The loans are interest free. The type of loan you can apply for depends on whether you plan to rent the property out or live in it yourself.

Empty property advice
Whether you are already the owner of an empty property or if you are thinking of purchasing a property that is empty then we can offer advice. There is lots of advice below covering purchasing, renting or selling an empty property. There is also information about the council's enforcement powers and how to keep an empty property secure.
Where properties are left vacant they can sometimes cause problems as their condition deteriorates. We can deal with a build-up of refuse, properties left open to unauthorised access and conditions damaging to neighbouring properties.
