We are committed to tackling the problem of empty properties in the region and support property owners to help bring homes back into use. If you are a landlord and would like us to help get your property back on the market either to sell or rent, or if you are a resident who has an empty property in our area; use our Empty Properties list to browse the properties available to rent or buy, as well as reporting properties that are empty in your area.
A property that has been empty for over 2 years could qualify for a reduction in VAT to 5% on renovation works to bring the property back into use. Properties empty for over 10 years could qualify for a reduction in VAT to 0% on renovation works.
You can report a property that has been empty for over 6 months by using our Empty Properties form, or by emailing our Empty Property Officer, email Thomas.Evans@ne-derbyshire.gov.uk or telephoning 01246 242424.
We are eager to speak to owners of empty properties and may be able to offer advice and assistance, if you own an empty property we would love to hear from you.
