Local land charges
A local land charges search gives property purchasers information about the property, such as conservation areas, tree preservation areas, conditional planning permissions, financial charges and several other types of charge. Although it is often completed by a solicitor acting on behalf of a purchaser, it is possible to organise it yourself.
HMRC has taken the decision to charge VAT for CON29 services. However, this has now been deferred until further notice. When it does go live, we will be issuing a VAT receipt for search fees or a statement of payment. For further information, please contact us on the email address at the bottom of this page.
