Key announcements

Our council tax and benefits online systems and forms may be unavailable on Saturday 21 May between 8am and 2pm due to planned maintenance. Details of how to offer support to Ukraine residents fleeing war, and where to find information and advice are on our City of Sanctuary webpage

Empty homes

Homes that stand empty in Birmingham are a target for:

  • Squatters
  • Vandals
  • Burglars

Instead, they could be providing homes for the many people who need one.

If you'd like to rent out an empty property, we can tell you what's involved and give you advice and guidance on the steps to take.

For further information please email us emptyproperty@birmingham.gov.uk.
