Our Empty Homes Review Service supports local authorities to bring empty homes back into use, addressing the need for additional housing and securing lucrative New Homes Bonus funding.
The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) is addressing the 710,000 UK homes currently lying empty by offering incentives to councils to bring them back into use.
Our Empty Homes Review service identifies long-term empty (LTE) properties which are occupied and attract New Homes Bonus funding, as well as increasing Council Tax collection, and improving accuracy of Council Tax records.
Our service includes:
- Property and review tracking workflow platform
- Review and reminder mailings
- Online response platform for residents
- Inbound and outbound calls and emails
- Property inspections
- Additional contact information provided
- Data analysis, trends and opportunities
We can work alongside your in-house team to ensure there is no duplicated effort or cost involved. On average we deliver £782,761 in additional New Homes Bonus funding for an authority once completing a review. This could be the last year that this scheme is made available, so we advise acting quickly to maximise the funding you could generate. All services are available on the Government’s G-Cloud procurement framework.
