Empty properties

The Council will get involved with empty properties where they are:

  • Encouraging rats or mice
  • Attracting the dumping of rubbish
  • Causing dampness to adjoining properties
  • Unsecured
  • Structurally unsafe

Our information on houses gardens in need of attention gives more information on how we can help.

We do not hold a list of owners of empty properties. If you wish to find out who owns a particular property then the Land Registry can provide you with details.
