Selling through the Matchmaker Scheme

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

If you are interested in selling your property through the scheme, please complete our online application / consent form or download a printable version of the form and return it to us.

Basic details of the property and how to contact you will be placed on a secure webpage with access only to buyers who are fully registered on the scheme and all registered buyers will be required to provide evidence that they have the finance in place to purchase.

For guidance, we advise that you have someone else present when showing the property or have group viewings.

Please note this is just a matchmaking service. The Council will not be part of the sales process. All negotiations should be conducted between the seller and buyer directly.

For more information, please contact the Empty Property Team on 0161 912 1377 or

Please note that buyers and sellers can ask to be removed from the list at any time should they wish.
