Where are Denbighshire's best home-mover destinations?

The county of Denbighshire is home to two of Wales's - and indeed the UK's - most famous seaside resorts in Rhyl and Prestatyn, located on the north-east Wales coast. The 870-mile Wales Coastal Path goes through the resorts as does the 372-mile National Cycle Route 5, ensuring both towns are ideal for those who like a life outdoors.

Inland you'll find the thriving county town of Denbigh with its spectacular setting beneath an enormous 13th-century castle.

Other sought-after inland locations include picturesque Llangollen, another town with a 13th-century castle that's situated close to the World Heritage Site of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal; the market town of Corwen, which also sits in a stunning landscape at the foot of the Berwyn Mountains; and St Asaph, home to the smallest cathedral in the UK.


How much does an average property cost in Denbighshire?

Property across Denbighshire can be considered affordable, though some pockets are pricier than others. Recent data from the Land Registry on sold property prices shows the average home sells for £159,148 in Denbighshire, well below the Welsh average of £172,828. In comparison, the average sold property price across all of the UK is £239,196, according to the Land Registry.


Is conveyancing in Denbighshire slower when buying a leasehold property?

There are two main types of property tenure in Wales: leasehold and freehold. Leaseholders own a property only, not the land it stands, which remains in the ownership of the landowner or freeholder. The land is then leased to the property owner, usually on a long-term basis that can last for decades and even centuries. Buying a leasehold property can occasionally be complicated because of the lease. For properties of this type in Denbighshire, conveyancing may take a little longer. Read more about buying leasehold in our detailed guide. When you instruct a Denbighshire conveyancing solicitor through Homeward Legal, they will request a leasehold information pack from the freeholder as part of the transaction process.


Which council has control of schooling in Denbighshire?

The local education authority is Denbighshire County Council. For more information on all schools and colleges across Denbighshire, go to the website of Estyn, the education and training inspectorate for Wales.


Is there an increased flood risk for property in Denbighshire?

All areas of Wales are susceptible to increased flooding, thanks to heavier rainfall and storms. Denbighshire has seen flood events around the rivers Clwyd and Elwy. Wherever you intend to buy in the county, ask your Denbighshire conveyancing solicitor to request a flood-risk search that will reveal all potential problems. For more information on all flood risk across the county, go to the Natural Resources Wales website.


What searches do I need for Denbighshire conveyancing?

When you instruct a conveyancing solicitor for a Denbighshire property purchase, they will conduct a series of searches to complete your transaction. We've produced a helpful guide that explains all you need to know. Here are some that may be particularly relevant to Denbighshire conveyancing:

  • Local authority search: Crucial for planning consents and information on conservation areas, including parts of Prestatyn, St Asaph and Ruthin.
  • Environmental search: Shows contaminated land and pollution, often a result of heavy industry.
  • Mining search: A crucial search in Denbighshire conveyancing because the historic North Wales coalfield runs under the county. This search will reveal the site of tunnels and shafts.
  • Chancel repair liability search: A historic charge related to responsibility for repairs to a Church of England parish church.
