Council housing - abandoned property form

Abandoned and squatted properties

  • Sometimes tenants leave their properties without telling us that they are going. This results in a property sitting empty, leaving it open to vandalism, arson and squatting.
  • Sometimes people move in to abandoned properties they should not be living in. This is called illegal occupation or squatting. This is not permitted under our Tenancy Agreement and we will seek to regain possession of our property.
