Recommended Posts

Apparently there isnt a houseing shortage in scotland, 4000 empty in dundee alone and estimated 70000 throughout scotland.

claimed about half of these were owned by the city council, and they were among 70,000 houses lying empty throughout Scotland.

A previousCourier arctile put the figure at nearer 5k though and 106k nationally...

The survey by Bank of Scotland found the number of vacant homes nationally, in both public and private sectors, was 106,000 — the highest for seven years.

You should post this on the main forum. Or on this thread http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=158016&st=0. Looks like there are lot's more pent up supply to hit the market.

So let us have a look at Reporting Scotlands view on all this.

Story that over 10 years Scottish house prices have risen quite a lot = Important enough to be a main story.

Story that there are over 100k empty houses in Scotland when we apparently have a housing shortage = Let's never mention it.

Fellow, feel free to post the link on other threads or forums im happy for the information to flow freely.

It talks about grants and loans does that mean private landlords can buy a wreck get a cheap government loan/grant to rent it out and then get guranteed tennants and rent ?

I like the idea of bringing them back into use but for the right people to benefit.

This is an intresting site:

The Scottish Empty Homes Partnership is funding the use of the website reportemptyhomes.com where members of the public can report the address or postcode of a suspected empty home.

http://scotland.shelter.org.uk/housing_issues/more_homes/empty_homes

Maybe the number of empty homes is more than offically recoded if we each report houses in our own areas that are empty.

There is a house near my parents that is piled up with books etc, im told it some sort of lawyers office or something does that fall into the empty homes category?
