Local land charges - search
A local land charge search provides information to anyone buying or carrying out transactions on a piece of land or property in the Sunderland area.
A local search will be in two parts:
LLC1 is a legal document which will show entries in the local land register such as financial charges, planning obligations, improvement grants, listed buildings, legal agreements and tree preservation orders.
CON29R is a standard form of enquiries agreed between the Law Society and Local Government Association. This will show any planning, highways, building control and environmental health matters.
To submit a search, you can do this by:
- using the Council's electronic service (a link to the electronic search form is below)
- using the National Land Information Service (NLIS).
Payment for your local search can be made by credit or debit card. A link to the online payment procedure is below.
