Recommended Posts

Up to 12,000 empty homes are concealed from official registers because they are labelled for demolition, according to the Empty Homes Agency (EHA). Figures from 20 local authorities with known housing shortages released to the EHA under the Freedom of Information Act revealed that 12,000 properties were sitting empty while being officially labelled as awaiting demolition. There are now approximately 700,000 empty homes in the public and private sectors. The government has provided £100 million in grant funding to the Homes and Communities Agency to help tackle the problem.

Putting more tax on land, rather than income, would encourage these homes to enter the market.

The other thing that would help us greater rights for squatters in unused homes. Use it it list it should be the law on land and housing.

There should be a time limit after which the property must be demolished. I suspect a number of these properties have been listed for a while.
