Recently Launched in Ireland: Database of Vacant Housing

Just launched in Ireland: a database of vacant housing. “Visitors to the website are asked to complete a form providing details of the property, its physical condition and any information about who owns it. None of this will be published for security reasons. Local councils will use the information to trace the owner with a view to getting the property back in use. The Government is offering grants of up to €40,000 to convert properties to social housing.”
