Land charges (schedule of search charges)

Please note these came into effect January 2010.

Important update: Following HMRCs recent decision that the introduction of VAT on CON29R and CON29O products submitted to the local authority is to be postponed, please note that our prices will not now be increased until such time as we hear that the implementatin has been re-confirmed.  See price list for Local Land Charge searches from 4 July 2016 until further notice [79kb]

It should also be noted that the Con29 and Con29(0) forms will still change from from 4 July 2016.  Forms received into the Local Land Charges Office by 4 July should be on the new version in order to delay searches being accepted, in line with the Local Government Association guidelines.
