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.
If you have an empty home that you want to bring back into use please contact Leeds Empties. Their Empty Homes Doctor service, funded by Leeds City Council, offers free, practical support to help you to bring your home back into use.
To contact them telephone 0113 200 9383 or visit their website (see the external links section).

Converting your property
If you have a retail or commercial building that you wish to convert to residential accommodation, or if you would like to convert your existing residential accommodation into smaller or larger units please see the Guide to Converting your property within the External links section.
Lets Help You
We work in partnership with a Government funded service called “Lets Help You”. This service can help match landlords with suitable tenants for empty properties in West Yorkshire. The council can find you tenants through the ‘Private Sector Letting Scheme’. See External links.
The council are carrying out a review of empty homes in Leeds. Please see the External links section to update property records for your address.
If you have any questions contact the council's Empty Property Team: 0113 3957151.
