Purchases of property in South East England '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.
Special planning consent must be obtained for alterations, extensions or demolition of a listed building. The majority of listed buildings are Grade II, which includes many residential properties. It is important to note that when a building is listed this affects all parts of the property, including garages, outbuildings and any other buildings within the boundaries of the property.
Significant highway works, or the expansion of the UK's rail system, can cause a great deal of inconvenience to unlucky homeowners living near construction. Buyers should be aware of any schemes (underway, or planned) in the South East England area. Local searches for road and rail works reveal:
Seymour Way, Sunbury-On-Thames, TW16
Nightingale Lane, First Floor Flat, London, N8
Narbonne Avenue, London, SW4
