In most cases, your solicitor will ask us to do the search as we do all official searches covered by the Local Land Charges Act 1975.
We are able to collect information from lots of different departments including planning and building control and bring it together to form a local authority search.
An official local authority search is made up of two types of searches:
|Search type||Search details|
|LLC1||It shows any charges affecting the land or property, such as planning decisions and tree preservation orders, and details of money owed to the council by previous owners.|
The CON29 reveals any planning, highway or environmental issues that either affect your land or property now, or could affect you in the future.
It can also include an optional section; CON29O. This covers any common land enquiries such as public paths and pollution orders. We charge for every additional question requested from this section.
