Empty homes

Inside Housing has launched a campaign to help landlords tackle the spiralling number of empty homes in the UK.

We are calling on the government to take three practical steps to reduce the number of homes that are standing empty at a time when demand for social housing is rising sharply. Our report also shows empty homes can rapidly cause unpleasant problems for neighbours.

You can support the campaign by signing our petition on the Number 10 website, or by emailing

Support pledge

Also let us know about empty homes in your area, and we will pass the details on to the Empty Homes Agency, or email us with your stories and images.
