Local Land Charges

This section gives an outline of Rother District Council's Local Land Charges service.

Please note from 1 January 2017 our search fees will be increasing due to VAT being applicable to CON29 enquiries. See our search fees page for further details.

Local Land Charge Searches

A Local Land Charge Search should be carried out when a property or piece of land is being purchased, leased or valued to find out if there are any matters affecting the land.

The search is in two parts. The first part the LLC1, deals with all registrable charges, such as grants, tree preservation orders, planning agreements, listed buildings and so on. The second part, the CON 29, deals with issues such as road schemes, planning history and environmental matters.

Make payment for a search.

Drainage enquiries are dealt with by Southern Water, Land Search Team, Southern House, Capstone Road Chatham, Kent, ME5 7QA.

The information given on a search relates only to the property or land identified on the search requested and plan. The Council does not provide information regarding surrounding property or land unless this is specifically requested.

When submitting an official search please include one copy of a location plan showing the boundaries of the property.
