Birmingham City Council

Empty Homes - Repair and Lease Scheme

Do you own a house in Birmingham that is standing empty?

Would you like the council to refurbish it for you inside and out?

Birmingham City Council's new Repair and Lease Scheme for empty homes will do just that.

In order to help us meet the ever-growing demand for family homes, we are now looking to lease empty homes across Birmingham in order to rent to people on our housing waiting list.

We will refurbish and maintain your home for the duration of the lease, during which time you will be paid a fixed annual sum. The lease period is set for 10 years. Throughout this time you won't be responsible for paying council tax for the property.

Contact our Empty Property Team today, or send in a completed Expression of Interest form (attached below), to find out more:
