Local Land Charges

How to search for the Local Land Charges that apply to a property.

Solicitors normally submit a Local Land Charges search as an essential part of property transactions. They include information about:

  • conditional planning consents and planning agreements
  • Tree Preservation Orders
  • conservation areas and listed building entries
  • enforcement notices or financial charges
  • other relevant information.

To make a personal search of the Local Land Charges register, you need to supply the Local Land Charges team with the search address and a plan of the property.

Submitting a search

When you request a full local search, you’ll need to include a plan of the property and the following forms:

  • LLC1 - provides entries from the Local Land Charges register.
  • Con 29 - provides additional information on the property. Additional charges apply for this search.

You can send your forms via post or DX.
