What is an empty home?

Show all parts of this guide

5. Enforcement action

We will offer advice, assistance and support to empty property owners to bring their properties back into use. We will work with owners to provide a tailored package of advice, assistance and incentives specific to the owners needs. We will encourage owners to work together with us to reach a solution in order to bring the property back into use.

As a last resort, we will pursue enforcement action to return a long term empty property back into use. Our approved Empty Homes Enforcement Policy outlines the processes that are taken before, during and after enforcement action is approved.
