VISION Empty Property Review

Powered by Equifax

Equifax Logo RedEvery Local Authority is responsible for maximising the Council Tax yield, but it can be a difficult, time-consuming and expensive process to identify and check which properties are newly occupied and require billing. In some cases Councils may have thousands of properties currently listed as unoccupied or empty, but circumstances can change on a daily basis.

The VISION Empty Property Review service, takes a Councils current empty properties list, sends it to Equifax to run through a number of checks and returns the results back into the VISION reporting tool to merge the data with other known property information. Typical results will confirm whether anybody is presently registered at a particular property, and whether any recent financial transactions have taken place referencing that address.

This information can then be easily and securely accessed, downloaded and shared with relevant teams for the necessary follow up action required.

VISION Empty Property Review can also be used with and works alongside our ‘FUSION’ product.
