Review of the Private Rented Sector: Volume 4: Bringing Private Sector empty houses into use

A review of initiatives to address the problem of empty houses drawn from case studies across the UK.


The researchers would like to thank the representatives of the Scottish Local Authorities who responded to the survey and participated in the workshop and all those in Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland who contributed time and effort to provide information for the case studies. Particular thanks go to Henry Oliver, Policy Officer at the Empty Homes Agency for his assistance at pointing us to local authorities in England engaged in work with empty private homes. Not least our thanks to the Scottish Government Advisory Group - Jonathan Waite, Alison Byrne, Anthony Andrew and Colin Affleck - for their helpful guidance and patience.
