In most cases, long-term empty properties are owned by absentee landlords. In others, the property owner has passed away and their estate (including their property) hasn’t been dealt with.

Estate Research offer simple solutions to help bring these properties back into public use.

Our service gives the local authority the opportunity to discuss with the owners the possibilities available to them, including potential rental income, savings on Council Tax and improving the local area.

Our Empty Properties Solutions is a completely FREE service to the local authority.
