Information about Local Land Charges, local searches and other points of contact.
Purchasers and re-mortgagers of properties within the Borough will usually need to carry out a search of the Local Land Charges Register to establish whether there are any entries recorded for the property in the register. If a full search is submitted (i.e. a search of the Local Land Charges Register plus the Con.29 form) this would reveal other things which may affect individual properties, such as adopted roads, outstanding notices, potential enforcement matters and proposed traffic schemes.
