London.pngGreater London is an area which contains London, the capital of the United Kingdom (which itself centres on the Cities of London and Westminster) and a number of surrounding boroughs which are administered as London boroughs and which are the overall executive responsibility of the Mayor of London. It contains a large number of constituencies, each represented by an MP and it should be noted that these are not the same as nor even always continguous with the borders of the boroughs.

Many parts of Greater London were originally administered by the counties which surround London and these counties are often called the home counties. Enfield, for example, used to be classed as being part of Middlesex, but is now near the northern border of Greater London. Greater London's borders often coincide with a zone of 'green belt': areas where it has been decided that open spaces, parks, forests and wildlife reserves should act as a buffer against urban sprawl. London has numerous landmarks, anything from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to Karl Marx's grave in Highgate Cemetery.

Greater London contains more than 9 million inhabitants, a number growing daily, and as this is approximately 1/7 of the population of the UK, it can be seen that Greater Londoners have a large influence on the rest of the country politically and this is enhanced by the concentration of skilled workers gravitating towards the capital.

Fast Conveyancing Tips

One thing you can do for fast conveyancing in Addiscombe is to opt for Monday as your completion date, when you get your keys and move into your new place.

Understandably, Fridays are the most popular days for completions - people then have the whole weekend to make their new place as shipshape as possible before going back to work on Monday. The trouble is, there's a fair chance that your conveyancing solicitor may well have other completions to do on Fridays and will be very busy already.

Therefore if you decide to opt for a Monday for completion - or indeed, just not a Friday! - your solicitor is more likely to be less busy and therefore more able to 'pull out all the stops' to help you to complete quickly, making sure all the transfers are carried out and so on.

So for a fast conveyancing move think about completing Monday to Thursday!


Conveyancing Costs in Addiscombe

The solicitors' fees for buying a home vary dramatically depending on whether you Conveyancing-Costs.pngapproach an online conveyancing solicitor, a high street conveyancer or a solicitor 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 solicitor or conveyancer.

Which property searches do you need?

When you are buying a property in Addiscombe, it may be one of the largest investments of your life. The last thing you want is to move in and find that there is something wrong with the property which could reduce its value.

Chancel Repair Liability InsuranceThis idea of 'buyer beware' means it is so important to investigate any risks or threats which might affect the property and its surrounding area. By booking searches from the Croydon Council you can find out about risks such as subsidence, pollution, preservation orders, radon gas seepage, planning permissions, and flood risks. 

We always recommend that you book at least these 4 searches from the Croydon Council: local authority, drainage, environment and chancel repair. 

It is possible that these searches will flag up suggested additional searches such as HS2, flood and mining reports. Your solicitor can advise you on this.
