The UK is experiencing high levels of homelessness. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, local authorities saw over 280,000 people without a home, but with more 648,000 empty homes in existence. The impact of empty properties can have a negative impact on communities – denying vulnerable families of a home; and if left vacant, can fall into a state of disrepair, attracting vandalism and damage to adjacent properties.
In this introductory level webinar Lyndon Campbell – Partner at Bevan Brittan, looks how local authorities can use their existing powers to bring empty homes back into use with the aid of Enforced Sales:
- what are Enforced Sales?
- the legal process
- benefits of using this power
- examples of best practice.
