Local issues considered by Leicester Conveyancing Solicitors

Disadvantaged in LeicesterLandregistry in LeicesterLocalauthority in Leicester

Disadvantaged Areas in Leicester

The government has designated certain areas as 'disadvantaged areas' and property purchases in such areas may qualify for relief from stamp duty. These are based on electoral divisions and local government wards. These wards do not always coincide with postcode districts, so the postcode search tool cannot always be relied on. Above this limit of £150k, nationwide rates apply regardless of whether the property is located within a disadvantaged area. A postcode search will usually determine whether a home being sold for less than the threshold is eligible. This relief is not generally available on commercial property, but some relief may be available for 'mixed use' premises such as a shop with a flat above.

Disadvantaged areas in Leicester include Latimer, Eyres Monsell, Belgrave, Charnwood, Coleman, Thurncourt.

Unregistered Properties in Leicester

There are a number of unregistered properties in the United Kingdom, including Leicester. You should ensure that the Conveyancing Solicitor you choose is fully aware of how to deal with properties relating to unregistered title.

A seller must prove their ownership by producing an "epitome of title", which is an unbroken list of ownership documents, reaching back fifteen years. Your Conveyancer must inspect these documents thoroughly to make sure they are of adequate quality to establish good root of title.

Council in Leicester

Leicester City Council is the local council to Leicester. A vast amount of information on the local area is open to public viewing, via the council office or the council website. The council website gives information on areas such as Business, Community and Living, Health and Social Care, Housing, Transport and Streets and Council and Democracy.

If you are considering moving to Leicester, your Solicitor will acquire a Local Authority Search which will give you more in depth information on the area. Your Conveyancer can advise you further on this matter.

The local authority and planning searches in Leicester is applied for at:

Leicester City Council, New Walk Centre, Welford Place, LE1 6ZG, Tel: 0116 252 7000
