Report an empty home

Empty homes can create problems for homeowners, neighbours, communities and local authorities.

They can:

  • Create environmental issues
  • Be a danger if dilapidated
  • Look unattractive and ugly if they are boarded up
  • 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

Please complete the form below if you’d like to report an empty home that is causing issues in your community.
