Vacant Homes

A dedicated website is available for members of the public to anonymously log possible vacant properties.

Local authorities can then follow up with the owners of the vacant dwellings to see if they can quickly be brought back into use in order to provide for families and individuals with a housing need.

The website, apart from assisting local authorities, also provides useful information for vacant home property owners as to what steps are needed and how they can bring their vacant unit back into use.
