Nationwide calls on Government to back empty homes fund

The Nationwide is leading calls for the Government to establish a fund that will help fill 226,000 empty homes in England.

The UK’s biggest building society says £185 million in an Empty Homes Fund would bring abandoned or unused properties back into use.

Its manifesto makes a series of proposals, such as giving first-time buyers council tax “holidays”. In addition, tax breaks could incentivise local authorities to repurpose vacant property.
