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

We greatly appreciate the efficient service ETSOS provides. We know that the time between placing an order and receiving the EPC and floor plans will be minimal, and that if there is any kind of query it will be dealt with usually within the hour. Keep up the good work.   Kyle Blue – PF&K
