Local Land Search Process

A search consists of two parts. The first part is called the LLC1 form. This form deals with all registerable charges, for example:

  • financial charges (registered against property or land by the local authority
  • housing and renovation grants
  • tree preservation orders
  • conservation orders; and
  • planning applications which have been approved with conditions from 1st August 1977

The second part of the search can have two forms known as the Con29 and Con29O.

The Con29 deals with a set of standard questions and the Con29O deals with 'Additional Enquiries' relating to highways, planning and environmental health history which may affect the property or land.

Sending in requests for searches

All forms should be sent to ourselves.

All searches you send us must include:-
