Local Land Charges

Each local authority is required to maintain a register of Local Land Charges (LLC). This register contains a variety of agreements, notices and orders affecting land and properties, which are of importance to prospective purchasers.

Why should you use our service?

The Local Land Charges team at Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council maintains and conducts searches of the Local Land Charges register for solicitors and licensed conveyancers on behalf of prospective buyers.

A full LLC search with Enquiries of Local Authority, form CON29 will also provide information on matters such as:

  • nearest highways
  • planning histories
  • environmental health
  • traffic schemes
  • housing
