Local Land Charges and Highway Extents
Highway and Con29 search enquiries
When buying or leasing a property, you must conduct Local Land Charge searches. These are completed by a legal representative of the purchaser.
They submit forms:
- LLC1 (Search of the Local Land Charges Register)
- CON29 (Enquiries of Local Authority)
These are passed to District Council with the fee. They set out a list of enquiries agreed with the Law Society.
For Buckinghamshire, the questions on the CON29 are split between the County Council and the district councils to answer. On occasion, a CON29 maybe sent to the County Council directly if the questions are only applicable to them.
We offer an enhanced search for information on a particular property or piece of land.
Please note that we do not give information relating to the adopted highway over the telephone.
On request we supply reports for Con29R and Con29O. This enquiry is part of buying or leasing a property and are carried out by a solicitor acting on behalf of a buyer.
