Report an empty home

Report now

Empty homes can become a target for crime, cause problems for neighbours and attract pests.

With an increase in housing need recently, it represents a wasted resource.

We only deal with empty residential properties that are used as homes.

If you think a property is empty, you can report it to us.

If you own a home which is empty, you can tell us and we can give you some advice about what you can do.

To report an empty home, you will need:

  • your name, address and contact details
  • details of the property, including how long it has been empty
  • details of the concerns you have about the property
