The total number of vacant dwellings in the area is estimated using council tax records, or a local survey if available.

Vacant dwellings include dwellings that are empty between changing occupants or undergoing modernisation, repair or conversion, or awaiting demolition, or repossessed, waiting probate; or newly completed but not occupied, owned by a charity, unoccupied annexes, or when the trustee is in bankruptcy.

Any group of bedsits is counted as one dwelling - these are only counted as vacant when all are vacant.

Exclusions apply to second homes, holiday lets, and flats and houses normally occupied by students; when the owner is in prison, receiving or giving care, in the armed or visiting forces; or if the dwelling is flood damaged or awaiting clergy.
