Squatters

Online ContactEmail:  Customer Services          Tel:  023 8028 5222

Empty council properties are usually awaiting repair, redecoration or re-letting and we are keen to ensure they stay empty so that someone on the waiting list has the opportunity to find a home.

The laws on squatting are quite complex and we cannot simply evict a person who is squatting. 

However, if any tenant becomes aware of squatters in a property that they know should be vacant, we should be advised so that we can take action. This applies generally to unknown and suspicious occupants.  

We cannot be expected to know what is happening in all the properties we own and we do greatly appreciate the information we receive from our tenants or any concerned member of the public.

If you see anyone suspicious or who appears to be squatting in a property please contact us using the details above so that we can resolve the matter quickly. Any contact will be strictly confidential.
