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.
Additionally, the Nottingham Community Housing Association are working in partnership with NKDC and the Homes and Communities Agency to bring empty homes back into use. If you are looking to sell a house with 2 or 3 bedrooms which has been empty for at least a year, please contact John Derham on 01158 443073 or email john.derham.@nchaorg.uk to discuss matters further.
If you wish to refer an empty home, or if you are interested in purchasing empty homes which are for sale, or you would like further information on how you may be able to bring your property back into use, please contact the empty homes team by calling 01529 308297 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Lincs Empty Homes website using the link in the Websites tab above.
In support of the governments initiative to tackle the shortfall in national housing we are currently undertaking a review of empty domestic properties.
