Land Charges

A local Land Charge search is usually needed when buying or selling property or land. It will tell you if there are any charges or restrictions, and let you know what your responsibilities are.

You can get this information by:

  • completing LLC1 or Con29 forms (available from your solicitor)
  • searching the Local Land Charges register in person (no fees).

Further information on Land Charges can be found on the National Land Information Service (NLIS) website.

You will need to send us the relevant LLC1 and Con29 forms, depending on your requirements, along with a site plan. This should be an Ordnance Survey extract (scale 1:1250 or 1:2500) clearly outlining the search area in red.
