Submit a local land charge search

A local land charge search consists of:

The LLC1 - this is the official certificate that deals with all the charges recorded in the Local Land Charges Register. These charges include, for example: grants, tree preservation orders, financial charges, listed buildings, and conservation areas. 

The conveyancing form (Con 29) - this deals with proposed issues such as road schemes, drainage, environmental matters, tree preservation orders etc. It deals with matters not held on the Local Land Charges Register. The form is divided into two parts: Con29 (R) and Con29 (O). 

A local land charge search will only give information relating to the property and/or land identified on the plan, it won't give information relating to adjoining or nearby properties.

If you have a more specific query, there's some more information on our Land Charges FAQs page.

What is it for?

A local land charge search is required to ensure that a purchaser of land or property is aware of obligations or 'charges held' on the Local Land Charges Register against that land or property. The word charge is used to describe a burden imposed upon the land or property which is binding on successive owners or occupiers.

How much will it cost?

There is a fee for issuing this document, which is taken when you apply.
