What a waste…

300,000 potential first time buyer homes left vacant for over six months - Halifax report

New Halifax research highlights that there are 290,862 private homes in England that have been empty for more than six months, the government's preferred measure. This is equivalent to 1.6% of all privately owned dwellings in England. The number of private empty homes has fallen by 6% in England over the past three years.

One thought on “What a waste…

  • Interesting that a VI is pushing this out.

    Interesting to note that in many areas there is no “Housing shortage” and the empty stock is standing empty due to the VAT imposed on renovations vice new builds. This is why the countryside is being concereted over – VAT inequalities – crazy !!
