Purchases of property in Central London 'disadvantaged areas' are eligible for stamp duty. Local government wards or electoral divisions are used to define the boundaries of these. These wards do not always coincide with postcode districts, so the postcode search tool cannot always be relied on. It may be necessary to make further enquiries with the local council, if initial searches fail to identify whether a residence lies in a disadvantaged area. A postcode search will usually determine whether a home being sold for less than the threshold is eligible. This search may not be 100% reliable, particularly in the case of new builds.
Environmental factors affecting both property prices and the health and safety of homeowners continue to make headlines. Your Central London Conveyancing Solicitor will usually perform a search of a variety of records of issues, including the historical use of the land, past contaminants and polluting processes, nearby toxic substances, radon gas and the risk of subsidence and flooding. Liability for the clean up of environmental issues primarily rests with the contaminator of the property. A remediation notice may be issued which will force the liable party to clean up the contamination, if they do not agree to do so voluntarily. Unfortunately, if they cannot be found, then the owner of the land could be required to pay for the work, even if they are entirely innocent. A full copy of the detailed technical report used to generate the search results may also be available to you.
Even Central London residences which have never flooded can be categorised as 'at risk'. Following the expiration of an agreement with the Government, insurers are increasingly uncomfortable with offering protection for homes at risk of flooding. In addition, home purchasers should be aware that flooding in previous years may not only impact insurance premiums. There may be unseen water damage which only a comprehensive survey would reveal. A detailed flood risk map is regularly updated by the Environment Agency to help home purchasers throughout London and the UK research residences.
