Empty property information and support

When a property is empty for a long time, it can fall into disrepair, get tagged and vandalised, or used by squatters. Empty properties are also a wasted resource that could provide much-needed homes.

If you are concerned about an empty property on the Island, let us know about it.

Your empty property

If you own an empty property and want to know about your options, we can help. Perhaps you want it to be used as a rental property, sold to a local housing scheme, or donated to reduce homelessness on the Island?

For information on how to look after your empty property, what options you have, preventing fraud, and if there are any tax incentives, view our empty property leaflet (PDF, 1MB).

To find out more about what we are doing about empty properties on the Island, contact us. The strategy is under review and will be republished in 2023.
