Open and derelict properties

Last Modified October 19, 2015

Empty homes can be an eyesore and attract vermin. They are also a waste of an important resource whilst thousands of families and individuals are waiting for an affordable home. If you know of a building which:   

  • Has been empty a long time
  • Is open or insecure
  • Is a danger to the public
  • Is an eyesore
  • Is causing rubbish or vermin problems.

Please tell us by emailing housing.options@hertsmere.gov.uk

If you are an empty property owner enquiring about council tax due on your property, please contact the Revenues section by emailing revenues@hertsmere.gov.uk
