Council Tax Empty Homes Review

Empty homes review

In support of the Government's initiative to tackle the shortfall in national housing, South Staffordshire District Council is currently undertaking a review of empty Council Tax properties.

Taking part in the review

If you are the owner of a property that our records say is an empty property, you will be sent a letter by CapacityGrid. The letter gives you the chance to tell us if the property is now occupied or unoccupied.

You can respond either online, or by completing and returning the form enclosed with the letter.

We would like you to respond within 14 days – if we do not receive a response, an inspection of your property may be carried out.

Responding online

The quickest and simplest way to respond is online.

Make sure you have your letter with you – you will need your:

  • Property reference number
  • Passcode

The property reference number and passcode are unique to you and your property, and will be shown within the letter. You can respond clicking the link below:
