Empty Property Grants for Landlords

Summary (optional)
This page contains information about a new grant scheme for owners of empty homes in need of repair
start content

If you own a property that has been empty for 6 months or longer, or if you are thinking of buying a property that has been empty for 6 months or longer, you may be eligible for a grant.

We will consider a grant of up to £20,000 per property if it needs improvements or alterations to make sure it meets current standards for rented accommodation.

The grant amount will be 70% of the cost of the agreed work, and the owner will be responsible for the other 30% of the costs.

Once the work is complete, you must make the property available to the Council for 5 years. During that time, we will use the property to help rehouse households who have become homeless through no fault of their own.
