A second information day is being held in Doncaster to help turn empty properties into homes for local people.
There will also be information on hand for private landlords who have an empty property that they are struggling to rent out.
The council’s private sector housing team and St Leger Homes’ staff will be holding the information day on September 25 between 10am and 4pm. The team will be located at Clock Corner all day so that anyone who needs some advice and assistance on what packages of support are available to bring an empty property back into use or more importantly stop an occupied property from becoming empty in the first place can go and speak to them.
Information, advice and support will also be available on the day for anyone who is having difficulties making their mortgage repayments or is actually facing repossession.
Doncaster council has a number of initiatives in place to help owners of empty homes who would like to rent them out. These are:
*A free tenant finding service.
*A property management service delivered by St Leger Homes.
*Help advertising an empty home if the owner wants to find a buyer
*Advice and assistance for landlords and home owners to prevent their property becoming empty in the first place.
*Empty Property Grants of up to £12,000 are available from the council while Empty Property Loans are also on offer of between £2,000 to £30,000.
Sarah Johnson, of the council’s private sector housing team, said: ‘Our first day was a success with 48 enquiries and since then 80 homes have been brought back into use by the team.
‘We now want to build on this success so if you have an empty property, or a property in danger of becoming empty in Doncaster please come and see us. If you know where there is an empty house, but you don’t actually own it, still come and see us. We may be able to get in touch with the landlord or owner and help them turn it into a home that someone needs.’
If you can’t visit the stall and want more details, please ring the Empty Homes Hotline on 01302 862031 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
