CON29 Changes: More information

9th July 2016

Jan Boothroyd, Chief Executive of Land Data, presents this webinar on the changes to CON29. To view the webinar click below

 

Why are changes being made?
The Law Society’s revisions to the CON29 forms have been implemented to improve the quality and consistency of information.  New enquiries have also been added to the forms, such as community infrastructure levy (CIL) and assets of community value.  The changes to questions will be implemented for both local authority searches and personal (regulated) searches.

You can view the new guidelines on the CON29 forms here.

How will this impact search orders?
To handle the changes to the CON29 forms, some local authorities will be closing early to enable them to make the required changes with their systems. If you are concerned about orders with a local authority, we recommend that you get in touch with your account manager.  You will start to see changes to the ETSOS ordering platform this week to ensure no searches are requested with the incorrect forms from 4th July.

What can I do to avoid being impacted by local authority closures?
For the local authorities affected, if you don’t want to wait to place your order, you can take advantage of our personal local authority searches to help minimise the impact of these delays. Please contact your account manager on 01524 220000 who will be able to assist you.

Is the addition of VAT to the CON29 reports still going ahead?
No. The implementation of VAT on CON29 products, which was also scheduled for 4th July, has been deferred. We are awaiting further details regarding when a new date will be set and will update you as soon as possible.

If you have any other queries please do not hesitate to contact us on 01524 220000.
