Council Tax empty property review

In support of the Government’s initiative to tackle the shortfall in national housing, we are currently undertaking a review of empty Council Tax properties. Please complete the Empty Property Review form to update the property records for your address.

Can we help?

Empty homes are wasteful both because of financial expense and missed opportunity. In order to help owners the Council and Partners are providing a number of initiatives to help bring empty properties back into use to help ease the shortage of housing in Trafford. We can help by:

  1. Providing assistance for property renovation.  We are able to provide a loan of up to £10,000 to assist with carrying out repairs within empty properties to bring them back into use.
  2. Information and advice on letting and management of the property to provide a  regular income for you.
  3. Finding suitable tenants through links with local housing associations.
  4. Helping you find property management solutions with local housing associations.
