Some local authorities in Scotland participate in a Matchmaker Scheme to help connect people wishing to sell an empty home with people who want to buy them. It is a free service and local empty homes officers will do their best to match buyers with properties that meet their criteria.

The Matchmaker Scheme is one way of finding an empty home to buy, however we recommend maximising your chances of success by also looking on the open market and perhaps at auction as well.

If you are interested in the scheme, just fill in the form below, and one of our team will be in touch with you.

The following local authorities now have their matchmaker schemes on the website where you can register direct.

If a local authority isn't listed below or in the matchmaker form this means they are not operating a scheme.
