Help for homeowners

Do you own a home in Southampton that is currently unoccupied?

We can help you to bring your empty property back in to use. We can give you advice on:

  • How to become a landlord using our Homeseekers Letting Service    
  • How to apply for the reduced VAT rate of 5% on repairs (where a home has been vacant for 2 years or more)
  • What to do if your home stays empty and attracts problems such as antisocial behaviour

For advice contact by email at housing.development@southampton.gov.uk
