Local Land Charges Service
Local Authority Searches
The Local Land Charges section carries out all official searches covered by the Local Land Charges Act 1975, with complete and comprehensive replies by the Council to the Local Land Charges search. A Local Land Charges search is normally requested by your Estate Agent, Solicitor or Licensed Conveyancer.
When we receive a Local Search it asks Ashfield District Council and Nottinghamshire County Council for information you will need to know before you buy a property or piece of land.

Submitting a Search
Two search forms are required to produce a standard Local Land Charges search:
- LLC1 Requisition and Certificate of Search
- CON29 Enquiries of the Local Authorities
How to Submit a Search
To process a search we will require either our Search Request Form or the Official Search Forms to be completed. The Official Search forms comprise:
- CON29 (2016 Edition)
- CON29O (2016 Edition) where required
These can be submitted together (for a full search) or individually.
In addition we also require a plan (preferably 1:1250 scale with the area to be searched clearly defined) and the correct Local Land Charges fee.
Please note: Roads in particular (upto a max of 3) should be clearly identified and stated in Boxes B and/or C on the CON29. Failure to do so may result in you having to make additonal enquiries which may incur and addiotnal fee.
For paper searches, please post completed forms to:
Ashfield District Council
Local Land Charges
Kirkby in Ashfield
Please be sure to provide the correct return postal address as we do not use the DX system.
For electronic searches, please email completed forms to email@example.com
A personal search is a search of the Local Land Charges Register only and does not reveal the full information provided by an official search. Please note that these searches are not Offical Local Land Charges searches and are not signed or endorsed by Ashfield District Council.
