Empty properties

An empty property is a wasted home that costs you money. It should be lived in by someone who needs it.

Report an empty property

If you think the property is being used for criminal activity contact Nottinghamshire Police (opens in a new window) on 101.

How we deal with empty homes

A homeowner must, by law, keep their property and land around it up to a minimum standard. If they do not we can take legal action. It must be safe, secure, and free from the causes of infestation by rats and other pests.

If a property, or a piece of land, does not meet the minimum standards we can identify the owner and send a legal notice instructing them to put things right. If the owner does not respond, or refuses to do anything, we can do the work and give the owner the bill.
