Hi- I read on here that there are some empty homes officers preparing to try to take on the empty homes work themselves when the leg kicks in. Please could anyone offer any advice on how they are going about this etc? I know I have spent much time just trying to figure out whats going on in empty homes, and a lot of people are quite a lot in the dark about it too so wondered what extra help and assistance some councils or officers must have been recieving to keep them on top of what lies in the future for empty homes work and the whole process of setting up enterprises or to consider taking on empty homes work themselves, and how they are already working with the some of the vast number of social enterprises that are already quite well established. Please could you offer any advice in case any one else were to also want to consider, and it would be extremetly useful for the rest of us to know how easily we could ourselves be challenged on our empty homes work. Many thanks.
