Official searches

During the process of buying a house (or perhaps land) it is essential that checks are conducted. These make sure there are no problems with the property that would result in a charge being sought from you as the owner.

Official forms used for this are:

  • LLC1 for a search of the register
  • LLC1 and a CON29 for a full search

Searches are normally organised by your solicitor or licensed conveyancer on your behalf. They can also be carried out by you as a personal search.

The Local Land Charges team at the council carries out all official searches covered by the Local Land Charges Act 1975. We guarantee comprehensive replies to the official LLC1 and CON29 enquiries from solicitors.
