Frequently Asked Questions
Who carries out the Local Land Charges
Search requests are usually received from the
Solicitor or Licensed Conveyancer acting for the purchaser of a
property. Personal Search Companies also make searches and
anyone can make a search if they submit their request on the
correct forms. These forms - the LLC1 and CON29 - are
available from Legal stationers.

A Personal Search will provide you with information similar to that

department yourself. You may be charged for any information
that is provided following such requests.
