Where are Flintshire's best home-mover destinations?
The biggest town in Flintshire is Connah's Quay, which sits at the mouth of the River Dee, and is close to the likes of Chester and Ellesmere Port. Flint, the former county town, is a few miles west on the Dee estuary, while further inland the likes of Holywell, Buckley and Mold are still easily reachable for commuters.
Mold is a traditional market town with lots to commend it to home movers, such as its beautiful location by the Clwydian mountain range. For more rural living, look to Penyffordd, Greenfield and Hawarden.
How much does an average property cost in Flintshire?
Flintshire's proximity to more expensive English counties means its property prices are higher than average than much of Wales. According to sold house price data from the Land Registry, the average property sells for £175,295 in Flintshire, slightly above the Welsh average of £172,828. Those Flintshire prices still compare very favourably with the UK sold property price average of £239,196.
Is conveyancing in Flintshire slower when buying a leasehold property?
Homeowners in Wales usually have one of two main types of property tenure: 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. It's vital that a home buyer knows the legal status of the property they're bidding on. When you instruct a Flintshire conveyancing solicitor, they will request a leasehold information pack from the freeholder that will detail everything about the property and lease. A slow response to this request can mean the transaction itself takes a little longer to complete. Find out more about buying leasehold in our detailed guide.
Is there an increased flood risk for property in Flintshire?
All areas of Wales are susceptible to increased flooding, thanks to heavier rainfall and storms. For example, the River Dee has been at the centre of a number of recent flood events and warnings. No matter where you are buying in the county, ask your Flintshire conveyancing solicitor to request a flood-risk search., which will identify potential issues. For more information, go to the Natural Resources Wales website.
What searches do I need for Flintshire conveyancing?
When you instruct a conveyancing solicitor for a Flintshire 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. Some that may be particularly relevant to Flintshire conveyancing are:
- Local authority search: Crucial for planning consents and information on conservation areas, including the centres of Flint, Holywell and Mold, along with 18 other villages across the county.
- Environmental search: Shows contaminated land and pollution, often a result of heavy industry.
- Mining search: A crucial search in Flintshire conveyancing because of historic lead mining activity, which will reveal the location of mine shafts and tunnels.
