Empty private houses and flats

In Havering there are at any one time around 1500 empty properties which have been empty for six months or more.


These homes could be used to house families who urgently need accommodation especially as there is a national shortage of affordable homes.

​Empty properties can also become a target for crime, vandalism, rodents, fly tipping, squatters and reduces the value of surrounding properties.
