Our Empty Homes Service
Designed with you in mind
There are many reasons why you may be responsibe for an empty home and if you are not sure what your options are, we have a number of transparent choices available to help you. None of our options involve us buying your empty home at a knock-down price or any price for that matter.
It is Government policy to encourage all local authorities to locate and re-purpose (re-occupy) all empty homes in the UK and this may ultimately nvolve a Compulsory Purhase Order being served on your property.
If you do have an Empty Home, it is highly likely that your local council will require you to either sell your empty home or rent your empty home to a tenant on their waiting list

Our network of solicitors recognised that the Sententia Empty Homes programme was ideal for estate disputes or family bequests where the cost of refurbishment was prohibitive or the family could not agree on a way forward.
Often, a house has been left as a bequest but is in need of refurbishment before selling for a higher value or renting to a new occupier.
If you have an Empty Home stuck in a family dispute or family bequest and are not sure what your options are, we may be able to help you and your family release, redevelop or re-purpose the property.
If an elderly relative has gone into residential care and their home is now unoccupied, their empty home may be able to help with the costs of their adult social care whilst the family retains ownership.
The Sententia Empty Homes service was painstakingly designed and fine-tuned in consultation with a local authority Empty Homes team and immediately recognosied by one of the UK's leading authorities on empty homes re-purposing to be "perfect" and "valuable" for local authorities.
Framework compliant, we offer pilot projects, a "zero-value" contract service and no ties-ins or minumum activity to help local authorities increase the rate of empty home re-purposing and overcome some of the biggest and well known barriers to homeowner engagement.
We can also recycle local authority grant funds and in the case of a CPO, the local authority can benefit from an uplift in property value.
