Vacant\Empty properties in the area

Wycombe District Council Nid oedd gan y wybodaeth y gofynnwyd amdani.

Dear Wycombe District Council,

I am looking for data on Vacant\Empty properties in the area. Are you able to provide details (addresses) or owners details?

We are also looking for details on out of town landlords (Can I
request the correspondence address for the landlord if you have
these?)

We buy houses and bring them back to life enabling more properties
back into the rental sector.
We want to offer the vendors a solution to this and offer our
services. I understand that many councils hold this sort of data?

I would like to understand if the local authority has an Empty
Property Strategy, the extent of empty property in the area,
how the local authority plans to deal with it and the names and
contact details of officers within the council who are responsible
for it.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

MARIE DEE

Wycombe District Council
