We maintain a local land charges register which contains details of legal restrictions attached to property or land, which are binding on the new owner or occupier.
We carry out official searches of the register, which is made up of two parts:
- LLC1 - the official certificate that deals with all the charges recorded in the local land charges register.
- Con29 - other matters affecting the property such as the planning history of the property, work carried out under building regulations and highways information.
Request a local land charges search
To request a local land charges search, we have provided an Easy Search Form, which simplifies the process and includes the fees.
Alternatively you can purchase and download the LLC1, Con29 and Con29O forms from the online legal forms store (opens in new window).
You must also supply a location plan and the appropriate fee.
The forms can be sent to us by email or by post to:
Local Land Charges
Chesterfield Road South
An official search guarantees a detailed response to the LLC1 and the Con29 requests. However, the search will not tell you about planning proposals for adjacent land or property unless you specifically ask for it. This information can be supplied at an extra cost, please contact us for details.
Request a personal search
A personal search is a search of the local land charges register but does not include all the information given on a full search.
Appointments for personal searches are available between:
- Monday to Thursday, 10am to 11.30am and 2pm to 3.30pm
- Froday, 10am to 11.30am.
They must be made at least 24 hours in advance. Each appointment is for 15 minutes per address.
To make an appointment, or to pay your fee by debit or credit card, please contact us.
You can buy a compiled report, which we can send to you by email. This report comprises of the entries on the local land charges register.
Please apply using the Assisted search form which also gives the current charge for this service.
