Tracing owners of vacant property
We are highly experienced in researching ownership of vacant homes and property.
When a property is vacant for a long time, ownership can be difficult to establish. The property may not yet be registered with the Property Registration Authority, which means searches would need to be conducted at the Registry of Deeds. Even then, it can be possible that the previous owner may have passed away, and ownership is still uncertain.
Our vacant homes service means we can assist local authorities in identifying owners or beneficial owners of empty properties, and trace their whereabouts wherever they may be worldwide.
We have seen cases where it may be one individual that owns a property, and in other cases, there may be multiple beneficiaries that will own a share in a property. Whatever the circumstances, we can assist in bringing vacant homes to the point where they can be purchased by the local authority from the owners.
