Empty properties are a financial expense. We want to help owners bring empty properties back into use. This will help to ease the shortage of housing in Torbay.

We can help by:

  • providing Information and advice on letting and management of the property
  • finding suitable tenants through our Housing Options Team

You can find more information on our landlord advice page.


To help tackle the housing shortfall we are reviewing our empty properties. The review will:

  • help us to maintain accurate council tax records
  • make sure you are paying the correct charge.

What you need to do now

You need to complete the review form to let us know the current details of the property.

You will need your council tax account number which is on the letter we sent you.
