Local Land Charges

In line with HMRC guidance we are implementing VAT in relation to the CON29 with effect from Monday 08 January 2017

The Local Land Charge Unit has two main functions:

  • To maintain a register known as the Local Land Charges Register as required by the Local Land Charges Act 1975.
  • To carry out searches of the Local Land Charge register and respond to applications for the Local Authority Searches submitted by solicitors and conveyancers as part of the Conveyancing procedure. A local authority search provides relevant property information held by the  council which can include:
    • Planning Permissions history
    • Building Control history
    • Highways status and proposed works
    • Environmental Health Notices
    • Public Protection (Environmental Health) Notices

Please note that the current turnaround time for Local Land Charges is 5 working days.

If  your search is for an auction, please ensure that you clearly mark the date of the auction on the front of the search so that we can ensure that it is returned in time.

Personal Search Procedures

Appointments must be arranged in advance by contacting the team at locallandcharges@west-lindsey.gov.uk. Appointments are for 1 hour duration with an unlimited number of searches per appointment. The last available appointment will be 1 hour before our normal office closing time (except Wednesdays 3.00pm and Fridays 4pm appointments being 30 minutes).
