Empty homes In Leeds

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.

Where Do you Get Your Information That a Property is Empty?

We generally get our information from searching Council Tax records

Are all Empty Homes a problem?

The Housing market would not be able to function effectively without some properties becoming empty at some stage. Whilst all empty homes could be considered a wasted resource it is usually the homes that have been empty for longer periods (6 months or more) that cause the greatest problems. They can attract fly tipping or anti social behaviour
