LLC1 only will reveal any information listed in the Local Land Charges Register.

LLC1 and Con29R will reveal information listed on the Local Land Charges Register and will supply answers to the standard questions on the Con29R departmental responses such as Planning, Building Control, Highways and Environmental Health.

Con29O are for requesting optional enquiries such as advertisements, road proposals, pipelines, public pathways and common land, town and village greens information.

 


As a rule the following are normally required to make up a search request: -

 

  1. Original and duplicate copies of the search documents LLC1 and Con29R.
  2. Two copies of a good quality, preferably Ordnance Survey based plan, the curtilages and surrounding areas must be prominent and the searchable area must be outlined in red.
  3. On the LLC1 please give a full description of the property including the postcode, grid references, if known, are also helpful.
  4. On the Con 29R please complete boxes A, B, C, D, E and F. Regarding Box C i.e. any roads or streets - it is very important that this is completed at the time of submission of the search, failure to do so may result in more monies being incurred and valuable time lost. 
  5. A cheque made payable to Craven District Council - please see 'List of Charges.

The official LLC1, Con29R and Con 29O's, are available from any Law Stationer.
