Local Land Charges Search
A Local Authority Search is usually requested by a solicitor on behalf of purchasers of land or property, and forms part of the conveyancing process. The standard questions give potential buyers details of any restrictions or legal obligations, which are enforceable against successive owners. We carry out all official searches covered by the Local Land Charges Act 1975 and we guarantee comprehensive replies.
The search is done in two parts. LLC1 is the Official Certificate of Search. This reveals all registerable charges including improvement grants, conditional planning consents, tree preservation orders and listed buildings. The second part is Con29 (Standard Enquiries of the Local Authority) which shows information about planning, building regulations, highways and environmental services. CON29 comprises of Required and Optional parts. You can submit both parts together or submit optional questions individually if required.
We are connected to the National Land Information Service. This means that searches can be submitted electronically via NLIS and once processed, returned electronically.
