Local Land Charges Search

A Local Land Charge Search should be carried out when a property or piece of land is being sold, purchased, leased or valued to find out if there are any matters affecting the land.

Searches are usually carried out in two parts:

  1. The first part of the Search (LLC1) deals with all registrable charges, such as conditional planning consents, grants, tree preservation orders, planning agreements, and listed buildings and some enforcement issues. 
  2. The second part (CON29) deals with issues that are not registrable such as planning refusals and unconditional consents, road schemes, planning history and environmental matters.

The information given on a search relates only to the property or land identified on the search plan. We do not provide information regarding surrounding property or land.

Anyone may commission a Local Authority search by submitting the correct forms, together with the required fee by email or post.
