Knowledge of the local Lewisham area is key to an easier, faster move. Relevant and up-to-date area information is gathered by our Property Lawyers thanks to their network of Lewisham contacts. They are also cognisant of the issues and considerations native to the area.

When land around Lewisham is developed for housing, the existence of a TPO will be revealed in a local search against property on the original estate, whether or not there are any affected trees on the specific property being purchased. Note that developers are often required to plant trees and carry out other landscaping work as a condition of getting planning permission. Trees planted in accordance with a condition placed on new build property developers are not necessarily subject to a TPO. Obtaining a copy of any TPOs affecting a Lewisham home before it is marketed will make it easier for copies to be sent to a buyer's Conveyancing Solicitor with the draft contract.
Stamp duty relief may be available for property purchases in Lewisham labelled as 'disadvantaged areas', based on local government wards and electoral divisions. As the areas which have been designated are based on local authority electoral wards, they do not always coincide with postcode districts. The postcode search tool cannot always be relied on to predict eligibility. Normal rates of stamp duty apply for purchases greater than £150k. 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 Lewisham include Rushey Green, Evelyn.
