Empty Property Assistance Grant

Empty Property Assistance Grants are available to help towards the renovation costs of bringing your empty property back into residential use.

Properties eligible for the Empty Property Assistance Grant will:

  • be located in the district in an area with community anchorage points such as a school, public transport and shops
  • be located within a community that is in an area of housing demand, as identified by Stratford-on-Avon District Council
  • have been empty for at least six months

The maximum grant award is £20,000 for each self-contained housing unit delivered by grant-assisted works.

The grant will be registered as a legal charge against the property at the Land Registry for five years and, on completion of the works, the council will require nomination rights for five years.

The Empty Property Assistance Grant is awarded at the discretion of Stratford-on-Avon District Council, subject to availability and meeting the required criteria including the terms and conditions of the grant agreement. Further information on the scheme is available in the Empty Property Assistance Grant leaflet.
