Submission of Local Authority searches
The Cheshire West and Chester Local Land Charges team provide a variety of searches and these are detailed below.
This is a search of the Local Land Charges Register only (all twelve parts).
- Official search (LLC1 and CON29R)
This is a search of the LLC Regsiter and Con29R questions. It covers additional important information about the property, for example, nearby roads. Cheshire West and Chester Council recommends you have this type of search when selling or buying property.
This form is made up of further questions that concern the property that can be individually chosen. For example, Public Paths and Byways.
- Con29 selectable forms
These are available for you to choose only certain questions on the Con29R form rather than have the whole form completed.
How to request a search

Submitting an application and fees

Currently the National Land Information Service (NLIS) connects to two property search channels that offer a conveyancing service - SearchFlow and Thames Water Property Searches. The channels provide electronic access to authoritative land and property information and act as a route to market for other land and property searches and products.
If your company is regularly sending searches to us then it is possible we can set it up so you are billed monthly for the searches you submit. To discuss whether this is available for you please call 01606 288612.
