Local Searches

A local search will reveal information relating to planning, road adoption and other vital information for house buyers.

There are two types of search, official searches and personal searches. Both take information from our Local Land Charges Register.

Official Searches

Open

Official searches are made up of an LLC1 and a CON29 form.

The LLC1

This form asks for information held on our local land charges register about a property. This includes anything about tree preservation orders, planning decisions etc. We guarantee the information on it.

The CON29

This is a list of 16 set and 18 optional questions about:

  • Building regulations
  • Common land
  • Contaminated land
  • Infringements
  • Nearby road and traffic schemes
  • Outstanding notices
  • Property history
  • Public rights of way

Apply by post

To apply you'll need to:

  • Complete one copy of the LLC1 and CON29 forms
  • Write a cheque payable to your local Council (Maidstone Borough Council, Swale Borough Council, Tunbridge Wells Borough Council)
  • Searches in Tunbridge Wells can also be paid online.
  • Give us an accurate address of the property or land being searched
  • Produce a plan showing the property or land clearly edged in red

And send them to:
