A local land charge search is carried out by a solicitor acting on behalf of people buying land or property. It provides information about any outstanding obligations or charges against the land or property requested.
A search consists of three parts and can be submitted as a whole (LLC1, CON29 & CON29O) or separately:
Part One – the register of local land charges (LLC1 Form)
This contains details of all obligations or charges registered against the land or property and which are binding on the current and all successive owners.
Part Two & Three – enquiries of the local authority (known as forms CON29 and CON29O)
These forms provide information that is not revealed on the LLC1 form and covers a variety of questions concerning planning, building control, environmental health, highways & drainage.
Please note: All searches submitted require a 1:1250 scale plan clearly outlined in red.
Please see the local land charges fees page for information
Once a search has been validated and registered no refund or part refund is made. All fees must be pre-paid before dispatch of documentation.
Building Control questions 1.1 j – l
Starting from April 1st 2002, there has been a facility for some building trades to self-certify their work. This applies to some windows and doors, some heating systems, some air conditioning systems and some solar energy installations. The schemes which allow self-certification are known as competent person schemes and details are available on gov.uk/guidance/competent-person-scheme-current-schemes-and-how-schemes-are-authorised.
The local authority does not issue notices, certificates or offer any approval for competent person schemes. Where a competent person scheme has been used the owner of the property should have been provided with a completion certificate by the person undertaking the work. The local authority cannot provide certificates on behalf of the competent person scheme.
Building control application records are only held for a period of 16 years from the date of submission. Computerised records commence from 2000. Application reference numbers can be ascertained on Cheltenham Borough Council’s website cheltenham.gov.uk/info/200011/building_control/1049/building_control_applications-submit_view_and_comment_online
