The Situation in Conwy

Summary (optional)
Talk to us about an empty home.
start content

At any time, there are more than 1600 homes in Conwy County that have been empty for at least 6 months. Many of these properties are in good condition and only remain empty while their owner decides what to do with them. However, others are in poor condition or stand empty for a long time. These properties can have a negative effect on neighbouring properties.

Cost of an empty home

One estimate suggests that an empty home costs its owner on average £135 a week (or £7018 a year). This includes loss of rental income, and costs associated with deterioration, vandalism, insurance and Council Tax.

How we can help

Our Empty Homes Scheme has been in place since 2008. There is a dedicated officer to help tackle the issues and deal with loans and grant funding applications.
