We specialise in bringing empty homes back into use on behalf of Local Authorities

Empty homes are a headache - for communities, housing services and environmental health. We can provide for a quick and efficient service to deal with empty property. For example, we can:

  • Arrange for properties to be cleared and secured

  • Provide a full valuation service and sale service

If the empty home is causing issues for councils and neighbours, let us know details of the property here and we can trace the owner and help to get the property back in use.

Many thousands of empty properties lie vacant or derelict around the country. Where the owner has, or is thought to have, passed away we can trace next of kin efficiently and engage with them directly to bring the home back into use.

If the empty property owner is living, we can try and re-engage with them to try and resolve any issues around the empty property.
