Empty Properties

Rochford District Council are committed in bringing empty homes back into use if you own an empty property please contact for more information about financial assistance.

Is there an empty home near you that you’d like to see lived in again? Let us know about it and we’ll do everything we can to contact the owner and help them to bring the home back into use.

We will write to owners of empty homes to encourage them to get in touch and access our free support.

But we also rely on information from people across the District who have spotted an empty home near where they live. So if you’ve seen a home that you think is empty, please let us know about it.

Please share with us anything that you know about the property – perhaps how long it’s been empty, or whether it’s causing any issues for neighbours etc.

You can report an empty property using the online form.

Owners of Empty Properties

If you own a property that has been empty for more than 12 months please contact us

We may be able to assist you financially by means of a Well Homes Empty Property Grant.
