Description

Are we building the new vacant dwellings of the future? This report analyses the nature of vacant dwellings in England, which represents about 4% of the housing stock. It explores what types of dwelling are most commonly vacant, what, if anything,is likely to be wrong with them, and what it would cost to carry out the necessary repairs and improvements.

The report examines the type of barriers that may prevent dwellings being brought back into use, even when they are in good condition. It also discusses the benefits of bringing dwellings back into use compared with the risk of letting them stand empty.
