The website has been developed as a central portal for individuals to anonymously log possible vacant properties and alert local authorities who can then follow up with the owners to see whether the house can be re-used quickly.

The website provides information for property owners about how to bring their house back into use. We encourage you to use this service. Access the Vacant Homes website at
