Squatters and unauthorised occupants
Unauthorised occupation of council homes
The local authority deals with squatters and unauthorised occupants in council property and will take action against a person who is squatting or who has unauthorised occupants in empty properties.
Empty council properties are usually awaiting repair, redecoration or re-letting and we are keen to ensure they stay empty so that someone on the waiting list has the opportunity to find a home.
If you are concerned that a council property has been occupied by someone illegally, contact the council using the details shown below.
