Producing more homes resurrecting empty properties


Property was neglected in 1997 and left empty by the owner who was retired. With the assistance of family members, the owner decided to dispose of the property through the Council whilst attaining best market value. The Council also wanted to help the owner regarding matters relating to land registry and probate.

Key Deliverables:

  • Helping a vulnerable owner of empty property resolve Title and Probate so that she could sell her empty property
  • Empty property brought back into use for social housing
  • Reducing environmental blight and anti-social behaviour
