Local land charge searches give information held by the Council about a property. They are used by solicitors, buyers and mortgage lenders to reveal important information prior to completion of a property transaction.

The Building Control teams from across six local authorities including North Warwickshire Borough Council joined together to form  the Central Building Control partnership.  To obtain Building Regulations please contact

The Local Land Charges Search is in two parts:

•    The LLC1, which is the legal certificate relating to all registerable charges.
•    The CON29 (2016) is a standard form, which deals with all enquiries relating to planning, highways and environmental history, which may affect the property/land.

Personal searches

As an alternative to carrying out an Official Search undertaken by council staff, customers can opt to carry out a personal search of the Local Land Charges register. 

Customers can obtain answers to the questions contained in the CON29 form by inspecting official registers and by submitting a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act and Environmental Information Regulations 2004.

When booking a personal search of the Land Charges Register we ask for 5 full working days’ notice.  Please contact Local Land Charges for an appointment by telephoning 01827 719235.

We need a full postal address and one plan of the property/land. This should be emailed to

We do not allow more than 5 properties to be searched per visit.
