Empty homes matching service

The free empty homes matching service connects owners of empty properties in Denbighshire with investors that want to turn them into lived-in homes.

We can’t guarantee that a deal will happen but we try to find the best match using the information we have in our lists of possible sellers and buyers. We hope the introductions we make will lead to deals that bring empty homes back into use.

How to take part

If you own an empty home and want to sell your property or if you are a potential investor, please contact us at strategichousing@denbighshire.gov.uk and we will provide you with further information. Application forms are also available below.

How the service works

What are the terms of the scheme?

Before you sign-up, you need to be aware that your contact information will be passed to other parties if a suitable match is found. Both parties must give specific permission before their information can be passed between them.

This service brings parties together to potentially negotiate a mutually beneficial deal but there is no guarantee of success.

Who can take part?

The scheme is open to anyone that owns an empty property in Denbighshire and any investor or landlord looking to bring an empty home back into use in the county. There is no charge for this service.

How are matches prioritised?

The scheme will match up empty homes and potential owners using basic criteria. Where there’s more than one suitable match, the date of the application is used to prioritise offers.
