Empty properties

Bringing an empty property back in to use benefits the property owner and the wider community.

Report an empty property

We are particularly interested in private properties that have been empty for over 12 months.

To report an empty property, call us on 020 8487 5123 or email residentialeh@richmond.gov.uk.

We will investigate and contact the owner to try to bring the property back into use. Where appropriate, enforcement powers may be used.

Please provide as much information as possible about the property, including a full address. This information will help identify what action is needed.

Empty property FOI requests

We are frequently asked for lists of all empty properties within the borough.

We do not hold a list of all empty properties, however we do hold information about those properties which we have been advised are empty in relation to Business Rates or Council Tax.
