In Leeds we have been addressing the challenges associated with empty homes for more than a decade and have brought back into use thousands of properties. We have loan schemes available to assist empty property owners to return long term empty properties back into use. Please see the documents section for more details or contact the Council’s Empty Homes and Loans team on 0113 3957158.
