Abandoned vehicles

Brent Housing Partnership (BHP) keeps an eye out for abandoned vehicles in our neighbourhoods.  Tenants should be aware that it is a breach of tenancy to abandon a vehicle.

Report an abandoned vehicle on an estate

An abandoned vehicle will be removed if it is causing a public nuisance, is untaxed or if it has not been removed by the owner for a specified length of time.
