Empty homes

Do you need help with your empty property?

Newcastle City Council is stepping up its campaign to bring long-term empty properties back into use in order to reduce the negative impact empty properties have on neighbourhoods and increase the supply of affordable housing in the city.

If you own an empty property we can offer:

  • Advice and support to bring the empty property back into use

  • Purchase your empty property

Check out our empty homes website for further information or contact Empty Homes Officer on 0191 277 1624 or email: emptyhomes@newcastle.gov.uk

Report an empty property

If you notice an empty property in the city we would like to hear from you.

We use many methods to try and keep up to date with all the empty properties but often our best source of information comes from residents reporting problems to us.  If you are worried about an empty property that is falling into disrepair, report it by calling 0191-2771624 or by email: emptyhomes@newcastle.gov.uk

We ask that you provide an accurate address of the problem property details of the owner (if you know who they are), and any other information you think may be helpful.
