Land charges

What is a local authority search?

A local authority or 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.

The local authority search consists of two main parts:

  • An extract from the Local Land Charges Register (Form LLC1) -  this holds information about a property such as: financial charges, restrictions and prohibitions. 
  • A set of enquiries from local authorities (Forms CON29 and CON29O) - this deals with matters not held on the Local Land Charges Register and is divided in to two parts. The CON29 covers a range of standard questions such as:  major road proposals, traffic schemes and road adoption/maintenance status. The CON29O is a further set of optional questions including: public rights of way, common land or town/village green enquiries. These are not necessarily required for a property purchase, but can also be requested.
