Bringing a Property Back Into Use

Bringing a Property Back Info Use

An Empty home needs to be looked after as much as one which is lived in. An empty home costs money! Excluding the cost of depreciation and vandalism, one official estimate suggests that an empty home costs its owner a staggering £135 a week, thats £7018 a year!


In addition to the lost rental income which your empty home could be earning for you, you will need to ensure is is insured (if insurance is available) and pay full Council Tax (after 6months of it being empty).


It makes financial sense to put your empty home to use. Below is some practical information and advice to help you turn your empty home into a valuable asset.




If you own a long term empty property you may have received a questionnaire asking you to tell us why the property is empty and if we can offer you any assistance to bring the property back into use.
