Official Local Authority Searches

ETSOS provide electronic Official Searches at all Local Authorities in England and Wales.

Full Local Authority searches are carried out in two parts: LLC1 (Local Land Charges Register) and CON29 (Enquiries of Local Authority)

LLC1: This is a search of the Local Land Charges Register maintained by the Unit which deals with registerable charges, for example – Improvement / Renovation Grants, Tree Preservation Orders, Sites of Special Scientific Interest, Listed Buildings etc.

CON 29: This is a standard form agreed by the Law Society and the Local Government Association which requires input by other Departments within the Authority. The information disclosed on the CON29 includes highways, drainage, planning, and environmental health matters.

CON29(O) – Optional enquiries of local authority. The optional enquiries can be requested on a per question basis and cover items such as Road proposals by private bodies, public paths or byways, advertisements and Common Land, Town and Village Greens.

As well as examining 65 individual questions that may affect a property, Full Local Authority Searches contain:

  • A clear plan of the search site
  • All questions fully answered
  • Inclusion of an official search certificate
  • Inclusion of applicable Local Land Charge Register Cards
  • Insurance cover that lasts

The service, support, turn around times and state of the art ordering system available to us through ETSOS has made the decision about who to use for the production of our Energy Performance Certificates a one horse race. I recommend them unreservedly.  Nick Elgey – Cumberland Estate Agents
