The City of London has a unique place in the government of the UK – and indeed within London itself – as it is not only a city but a county and a local government district and is in many ways autonomous. It constituted most of London going back to the 1st century Ad (the Romans settled it after invading). It isn't a London borough and is the smallest county in size in the UK.

It is frequently referred to as just 'the city', particularly in relation to the West of London and is world-renowned as the premier global financial trading district and area and is particularly known for currency exchange and insurance but numerous other financial products, trading and services. It has its own Lord Mayor - and this is quite distinct and much older than the post of the Mayor of London – and the Lord Mayor is elected by aldermen who themselves are elected, uniquely by livery companies. Its local authority is the City of London Corporation which, unusually, has responsibility for a separate police force/service, the City of London Police and other powers, some of which run beyond the boundaries of the city itself.

Landmarks and attractions are many, not least because of the sheer preserved history which can be found in and around the area. They include, for example, the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Pudding Lane, the Old Bailey (the central criminal courts), Lloyds Building, 30 St Mary Axe – otherwise known as The Gherkin, The Shard building, London Wall, the Barbican and many boutique shops and old pubs such as the George and Vulture and the Counting House.

The City of London is extremely well connected in terms of transport links to it. It is, for example, where more than one overland railway terminus is located – take London Blackfriars, London Cannon Street and London Fenchurch Street – but is also traversed by the Thameslink service (City Thameslink is one of the stations to access it) and, when it's completed, the Elizabeth Line/Crossrail.

There are numerous tube stations on numerous lines, for example Manor House station on the District and Circle Lines, numerous red London buses, numerous black cabs and, within easy travelling distance, London City Airport.

The City of London is a county and its border is the same as the city of the City of London's. It's the world's premier financial centre and has uniquely more autonomy than any other county and has powers that overreach its boundary.

Technically the City also includes the exclaves/independent enclaves of the inner and Middle Temple, which neighbour each other and are two of the few remaining liberties, an old name for a geographic division.

The city's county corporation also owns and runs both Smithfield Market and Leadenhall Market. It owns land beyond its boundaries, including open spaces (parks, forests and commons) in and around Greater London, including most of Epping Forest, Hampstead Heath. The Honourable The Irish Society, a body closely linked with the Corporation, also owns many public spaces in Northern Ireland.

The Corporation owns Old Spitalfields Market and Billingsgate Fish Market, in the neighbouring London Borough of Tower Hamlets. It owns and helps fund the Old Bailey, the Central Criminal Court for England and Wales, as a gift to the nation, having begun as the City and Middlesex Sessions.

The boundary of the City was unchanged until minor boundary changes on 1 April 1994, when it expanded slightly to the west, north and east, taking small parcels of land from the London Boroughs of Westminster, Camden, Islington, Hackney and Tower Hamlets. The City also lost small parcels of land, though there was an overall net gain (the City grew from 1.05 to 1.12 square miles). Most notably, the changes placed the (then recently developed) Broadgate estate entirely in the City.

What are the conveyancing costs?

City of London Conveyancing Solicitor fees dramatically vary depending on whether you approach an online conveyancing solicitor, a high street conveyancer or housing solicitors introduced by your estate agent.

The actual conveyancing costs, outside of the legal work, should be fixed as they are set including:

For buyers: stamp duty, land registration, property searches, ID searches and leasehold charges (if buying a leasehold property).

For sellers: office copies, title plan and management information (if selling a leasehold property).

It is important to make sure when budgeting the costs of moving home that you factor in all of the above conveyancing costs and ensure you get a fixed fee conveyancing quote from your chosen local solicitors or licensed conveyancer.
