Ashfield LLC1 and Con29 Search
Ashfield Council LLC1 and Con29 Search Report
Local Land Charges Search
When you buy a house, your solicitor will make a search of the Council's records to ensure there are no hidden surprises, such as motorways at the bottom of your garden or outstanding Notices requiring you to take action to remedy an earlier wrong doing.
What is a Land Charge search?
The Local Land Charge Section carries out a search under the Local Land Charges Act 1975, guaranteeing comprehensive replies to the official LLC1 and CON29 enquiries.
The search will be in two parts:
LLC1 - this first part, the Certificate of Search Form, deals with all the registerable charges, for example financial charges (registered against the property by the local authority), improvement grants, tree preservation orders, conditional planning consents and agreements.
CON29 - the second part called Enquiries of Local Authorities Form deals with issues such as road schemes, the planning history of the property and various notices which may affect the property.
What is a CON 29 enquiries questionnaire?
The CON 29 enquiries questionnaire, which forms part of the official search, contains many 'Warning' questions. Examples of the information to be found are given below:
• Compulsory Purchase Orders
• Proposed Tree Preservation Orders
• Many informal notices under planning and highways laws
• Road proposals or schemes (including road widening)
• Proposed enforcement action or breach of conditions notices
