Cost of living support
Colchester City Council is providing support for residents facing the cost of living crisis.
We are an experienced, knowledgeable and trusted team that can provide you with the property search information that you need and when you need it.
Searches can be requested and paid for simply online and we deliver results back to you within days of your request.
A local land charge can be a financial claim, restriction, decision or information which may affect a particular property or area of land.
A local land charge search will highlight these charges and help you to make an informed decision about buying an area of land or property.
Charges can include:
It shows any charges affecting the land or property, such as planning decisions and tree preservation orders, and details of money owed to the council by previous owners
The CON29 reveals any planning, highway or environmental issues that either affect your land or property now or could affect you in the future
It can also include an optional section; CON29O. This covers any common land enquiries such as public paths and pollution orders. We charge for every additional question requested from this section.
The most popular request is for a “full search” this is the LLC1 and CON29 combined. You can then decide if you want to add any optional questions from the CON29O.
