|My landlord wants me out of my house - what do I need to do now?||07 Nov 2012|
Copeland Borough Council are urging people with empty homes to bring their properties back to life and help manage housing needs in the area. In September 2015 there were over 600,000 empty homes in England and 200,000 of these 600,000 were ‘long-term’ empties (empty more than six months). There are private properties standing empty in Copeland, whilst at the same time there is a shortage of housing in the Borough. We are actively looking to bring these empty properties back into use.
