Regulated Local Authority Search

Regulated Local Authority Search

A local authority search, which will examine all of the local authority’s records pertaining to the subject land or property, is an important and often compulsory element of conveyancing.

Searches UK offers a Regulated or Personal Local Authority Search as an alternative to the Council (Official) Local Authority Search.

The main difference between the searches is that the Official Search is carried out by council officials and issued by the relevant department within the council, while the Regulated Search is carried out by a search agent such as Searches UK. The Regulated Local Authority Search also includes a professional indemnity insurance.

The Regulated Search will include all planning, building control and highways department data relating to the land or property, but it does not reveal planning applications relating to neighbouring or nearby land or property.

The search is delivered in three parts: CON29 enquiries, the LLC1 and, if required, the CON29 Part 2 enquiries, which are optional.

Searches UK offers nationwide coverage of all councils within England and Wales to deliver Regulated Local Authority Searches
