We are working with Doncaster Council to help bring back into use as many empty residential properties as we can to provide much-needed homes for local families.
Help Available to bring Empty Properties back into use
If you own an empty property, there are a number of ways in which we might be able to help you bring it back into use:
Empty Homes Loan Scheme
Our Empty homes loan scheme aims to provide financial assistance for owners that require support to refurbish their empty property in order to bring it back into use. The amount of loan available is dependent upon individual circumstances but can range from £5,000 to £30,000. Once refurbished, the property can be either sold or let through our St Leger Lettings service. For more information and details of how to apply, please contact us using the details at the top of this page.
Property Matching Scheme
We are currently developing a scheme which aims to match empty homeowners, who would like to sell their property, with people who want to buy an empty home.
If this is something that may be of interest to you, please contact us using the details at the top of this page to register for this service.
Empty Property Grants
Dependent on available funding, grants of up to £12,000 per owner may be available in limited cases to help improve an empty property so it can be brought into use.
To qualify, the property must have been owned for a minimum of 12 months, empty for at least 6 months and must be re-let under a minimum 5 year management agreement with St Leger Lettings.
For more information, including the full range of terms and conditions, please contact us using the details at the top of this page.
Empty Property Acquisitions
Working in partnership with Doncaster Council we have limited funding available to purchase and improve empty homes so that they can be re-let.
The property must have been empty for at least 6 months and will be subject to meeting further qualifying criteria in terms of need / area. For more information, please contact us using the details at the top of this page.
We have limited funding to purchase larger type properties (4 bed +). Initial consideration would be given to former council properties in areas of housing need and where we have a high concentration of existing stock.
