This is the London borough with the most empty homes

21 Avril, 2017, 16:38 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

The number of homes sitting empty in England has dropped by 36 per cent in the past decade as the property boom spreads north and councils take more action against vacant properties.

The wealthy borough of Kensington and Chelsea was the worst performer in London as super-rich owners rejected renting them out or selling up in favour of leaving their properties lying idle.

According to Liverpool City Council's Empty Homes team, as of 1 April 2016 there were 4,207 long-term voids (properties which have been empty for six months of longer) in the city, a figure which was recorded at 3,449 in October 2016. While Birmingham recorded a 13% jump in empty properties in the previous year and Liverpool suffered a 5% rise to 3,449, Manchester registered the greatest fall over a decade, dropping 88% to 1,365.

Campaigners from the charity Empty Homes argue that the Government's figures undercount the real number of empty homes.

This is how the number of empty homes in different London boroughs has changed over the last 10 years.

Research conducted by investment marketplace Property Partner unsurprisingly shows London as the primary culprit for idle homes, with the Kensington and Chelsea area of the capital taking the top spot with 1,399 empty houses.
