Move in and claim it as your own after 7 years. It's a real thing lol
Are you sure there isn't a skeleton sitting in an armchair facing the TV wearing a dressing gown?
If rates were not being paid council would have already sorted this out.
Possibly gone into ages care and home can not be sold until the owner passes.
Complain to the council and get your neighbours to complain too. Make the complaints based on health and safety as they get actioner quick than just the place looks untidy. The council might not even know how to contact the owners but they can take action to tidy a property if it is unsafe
Talk to your local council, not mp. They will do a title search and locate them from there. Keep at them and make complaints. We live next to an abandoned house and complained, they had to tidy up or get finned. We just pay for new fences etc as we could take them to court but is easier to just pay for it ourselves.
Talk to the council not the PM. PM will have no idea about what the council can/can't do. Council won't give you any of the owner's personal details but if you make a complaint about the long grass or something they have to give notice to the owner to do something about it. Also, the rates must be getting paid or they would have done something about it being in arrears if it's been neglected for so long. I don't see how contacting nursing homes/hospitals etc will help as they won't give out details about their patients. Especially if you're contacting them to try and get money out of them.
I think your best bet is to make your complaint to council (and make sure you follow it up until it's sorted) but short of hiring a private detective - your chances of finding the owner and getting money out of them are pretty slim.
Just do the repairs yourself. Keep all of the receipts just in case you do find the owner and they are amicable.
We are having the same issue. The council will help you.
Make a complaint to council - make sure you find out their time frames as to when things will be done and keep ringing back and following up until it's done.
Is the surname unusual? Maybe you can search for relatives, people with that name and message them explaining the situation. Facebook might be a start
