North Kesteven District Council are committed to bringing empty homes back into use. We are able to offer advice and information to owners on the options available, and are currently offering a lease and repair for a select number of properties. The council also has an Empty Property Working Group which looks at the more problematic vacant homes in the district. This might include homes subject to vandalism and antisocial behaviour, or where the condition of the home is detrimental to the neighbourhood.
We have partnered with the Homes and Communities agency to provide a scheme whereby we will renovate an empty home and then fully manage the home paying the owners a guaranteed rent over a 7 year period.
You can report an empty home using our online form
If you would like further information on how you may be able to bring your property back into use or you wish to discuss an empty property near you please contact the empty homes team by calling 01529 308297 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
In support of the governments initiative to tackle the shortfall in national housing we are currently undertaking a review of empty domestic properties.
