Case study – Privately owned empty home now let to Ukrainian family fleeing the war

This property had been empty for just under 3 years in the city of Aberdeen. The council have high numbers of empty homes and are directing resource and policies to proactively bring empty homes back into use. In this case study, Aberdeen City Council used their Matchmake to rent scheme to match Ukrainian tenants from the Refugee Settlement Scheme to the owner of this empty property who offered it at Local Housing Allowance rates. This has provided much needed affordable housing, as well as an empty property that is now back into use.
