Buying through the Matchmaker Scheme

The Empty Property Matchmaker Scheme was devised to bring together the owners of empty properties in Trafford and private individuals, investors or developers who want to purchase an empty property in the borough.

If you are interested in buying through the scheme, complete our online application form and return it to us. Contact us directly at if you are unable to complete the online application form. 

You will not be contacted on receipt of your application but your details will be added to our Matchmaker register. Should any empty property sellers register for the scheme with properties that match the criteria you specify, you will be contacted directly with further information.

Buyers and sellers can ask to be removed from the list at any time by contacting us.

This is only a matchmaking service and we will not be part of the sales process. All negotiations should be between the buyer and the seller directly.

Should you require any further information, contact the Empty Property Team:
