Our Empty Property Matching Service aims to introduce empty property owners who would like to sell their property with potential buyers who are interested in buying any empty property.

Selling an Empty Property

If you own an empty property, the Matching Service provides an opportunity for you to promote your property for sale. Your property may match with people who want to buy an empty property. It can help you find a buyer if you’ve been having difficulty selling. We will advertise the details of your property on the Council's website.

If you are looking to buy an empty home, the Matching Service can help you find the property that is right for you. You can let us know if there is a particular empty property that you are looking to buy, and if you register to this service, we will notify you about suitable properties before they become available on our website. This service can help potential buyers with our support that is available to empty property owners, in bringing homes back into use. Working with us means that, if appropriate, you can access development finance, VAT reductions and other incentives

Our aim is to introduce long-term empty home owners who are looking to sell their property with people who are looking to purchase an empty property.
