An effective voids process and policy can maximise rent and revenue, reduce ongoing repairs and maintenance costs, offer fit-for-purpose properties for prospective tenants and contribute to local communities but the process around the re-letting of empty homes can be challenging for social housing providers.
In September 2023, we will be launching a six-month Empty Homes sub-group. The group will focus on best practice approaches and methodology, in the effective management of the void process.
The programme will be facilitated by Debbie Larner, an experienced, qualified and dedicated Chartered Housing Professional with over 30 years of experience working in the housing sector – both in front line roles and for housing’s professional body, the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH).
The programme is available for AMIP members to attend and attendance is uncapped.
