Local land charges
A local land charges search gives property purchasers information about the property, such as conservation areas, tree preservation areas, conditional planning permissions, financial charges and several other types of charge. Although it is often completed by a solicitor acting on behalf of a purchaser, it is possible to organise it yourself.
Following the announcement by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) in December 2016, we will be adding VAT to all CON29 and CON29O products on 31 March 2017.
Our current prices for CON29 will rise by 20 per cent to reflect the VAT. We will be issuing a VAT receipt when we receive payment or confirmation of payment for the search.
Please see the ''How much does it cost?" tab below for a list of fees with VAT added.
