Buildings that were bought in the middle of the night have a high likelihood of being put up for sale.
A new survey by the National Building Authority found that, in some cases, properties in the capital’s inner-city core are being rented out to builders who had no previous experience of building buildings.
This is because of the limited number of vacancies and the need for skilled and experienced staff to fill vacancies.
A lack of available qualified staff means builders have to spend huge amounts of money to hire people to help with the project.
This is why in some areas, such as the area of the Olympic Park, there are shortages of qualified staff.
The survey found that while the average vacancy rate for all new homes is around 20%, it rises to 40% for homes built in the past four years.
In a recent study, the Government found that the number of vacant homes in London has doubled in the last year.
“This is a problem because you’re getting more people into buildings and it can be harder to find qualified staff to work on a project,” said NBRA director general Tom Macpherson.
“We don’t want people coming into our buildings to spend their time looking after the property.
We want them to work in the building, in the community, helping to do the work.”
A shortage of qualified workers to undertake the jobA shortage also means builders are spending a lot of money on consultants, contractors and people who have no experience of buildings.
In some cases this has resulted in empty buildings, with builders being forced to sell their homes.NBRA said it has also been finding that many of the vacancies have been due to people who are “unable to commit the appropriate number of hours to completing the project”.
The report found that only 11% of new homes built during the past five years had been built using the latest building technology.
NBRa has launched an urgent drive to fill vacant homes, with a new scheme, Building Informed, set up to identify vacant homes.
The organisation has been working with local authorities and councils to get people to submit applications for the vacant homes which it will use to buy the properties, and to offer compensation if the properties are sold.
“The number of homes that are being bought and sold in the UK has gone up, it’s just that we have a lot less qualified people,” Mr Macphersen said.
“That’s where we need to be looking at building more.
We’re looking at getting more qualified people in the country to help.”NBRas study found that it would cost around £250,000 to buy a house worth £400,000, and that this could take two to three years to complete.
The NBRa is now encouraging people to contact the organisation if they want to buy an empty home.
It is also encouraging people with a disability to apply to the charity for help.
NBR’s chief executive Simon Tisdale said the report showed that building communities could not continue without building more homes.
“It’s a real concern that we’ve had a situation where the number and size of empty homes is out of control and we need more people to be involved,” he said.
He said he hoped the government would act to improve the process for people to apply for vacant homes and help to prevent them becoming a drain on the city.
