The Law Society have introduced new CON29 Forms and from Monday 4th July 2016 all searches will be answered using the revised CON29 questions. As a result the cost of the CON29 will increase to reflect the additional questions and requirements.
The Local Land Charges price list effective from Monday 4 July 2016 and prices for individual CON29 questions are available.
It is a full and comprehensive search of the Council's property records. We answer a series of questions contained in the search enquiry forms - CON29R, enquiries of a local authority and form LLC1 - to reveal entries contained in the Local Land Charges Register. These entries are searched to make sure that there are no hidden surprises such as:
Items revealed on the CON29R part of the application form relate to Planning, Highways, Environmental Health, Housing and Building Control issues. It is not possible to answer all of the CON29R questions by only inspecting public records. An additional set of optional questions, CON29O, can be asked if extra information is required. We can answer these and solicitor’s own questions on payment of an extra fee.
A standard residential search costs £98.00, and a standard commercial search costs £275.00.
