Empty homes interest free loans


If you're a private landlord, or a prospective buyer looking for a property to move into, you might qualify for an interest free loan to help you move in.

There is some funding available to help you bring a long term empty residential property in council tax band A or B back into use. A long term empty home is one that has been empty for at least six months.

If you're interested in applying for a loan please contact us for further information and an application form.
