Clearing a property owned by the council can be stressful and costly. In this article we answer questions about council property house clearances and council property house clearances after a death.
Who pays for a Council Property house clearance?
The main idea of house clearance is too arrange for someone to come and collect a range of items and dispose of them on your behalf. If the items have value then you may see some remuneration for them however in most cases the items have very little value and it does not offset the cost of removal and disposal costs.
How long do you have to clear a council house after death?
In the sad event a member of your family dies you will need to clear the deceased property of all items and return the keys at the end of any notice period you are given. In most cases this is usually around 4 weeks. Some local councils offer house clearance services and can be compassionate to your situation, however in our experience the turn around of council properties after death can mean that you have very little time to clear and clean the council owned property prior to vacating it. Often you will be charged extra rent should the property not be cleared in time.
