Buying a house in the City of London

Known as the Square Mile, the City of London is the capital's premier business district and home to some of the best-known banks and companies in the world with around 450,000 cramming into its offices on normal working days.

But when the office workers go home, around 8,000 people remain because the Square Mile is their home.

Property in this part of town is expensive because there are fewer homes to choose home and high demand. But if you're determined to settle down in the city, we've got all your questions on moving and conveyancing in the City of London covered.

What are schools like in the City of London?

There are few schools within the City of London itself. The corporation is responsible for one maintained primary school, eight sponsored academies (as part of the City of London Academies Trust) and two co-sponsored academies in neighbouring boroughs.

It also supports three independent schools. If you know the school you're interested in, you can check its Ofsted rating on the government's school comparison website.

What conservation areas in the City of London should property buyers know of?

Its long and illustrious past means the Square Mile is filled with significant buildings and areas that need to be preserved and enhanced. Those are allocated into conservation areas, and there are currently 27 in the City of London.

Special planning rules are in place for these areas, strictly controlling what land and property owners can do. Your City of London conveyancing solicitor will ask for a local authority search that will show any current or historic planning consents for the property you're buying.

Did you know?

Until 1994, there was not a single road in the City of London. All thoroughfares were streets, squares or alleys, but none contained “road”. That changed with boundary changes that meant the eastern half of Goswell Road came into the city's jurisdiction with the other half remaining in the Borough of Islington.

No Completion No Fee is our promise that in the unfortunate event that your property transaction falls-through you will not be liable for any of the conveyancer’s fixed legal fees for the work completed.

To secure this benefit a fee, already included in your quote, is taken upon on deciding to go ahead with your transaction.

Should your transaction fall through, for whatever reason, we can hold this amount on account for your next transaction or provide a refund.

Your Fixed Legal Fee** quote from Homeward Legal ensures that you pay no more than we have quoted you for and is based on the information you’ve provided to us being true and accurate.

There are specific circumstances on a minority of transactions that may require additional charges that could not be foreseen at the outset.

A list of those charges and explanations can be found here with details of the potential cost. These will only be charged following discussion with your conveyancer with a clear explanation of what they are for.
