Empty residential properties

There is a serious shortage of homes in Newham. So It makes sense to make sure that existing empty houses, dilapidated commercial buildings and vacant plots of land are used properly.

Problems caused by empty properties

Empty houses can decay and become unpleasant. They can also become a problem to other people who live in the neighbourhood.

Houses can end up being squatted and vandalised which can include fire damage.
 
 

If your property is empty

We are always keen to meet owners of empty properties on site to give advice and guidance on how to bring a property back into use.
 
If we don't hear back from an owner when we try to contact them, we may take legal action to bring the property back into use.
