Local land searches

What is a search?

A search is carried out, usually on behalf of purchasers of land and property to establish if there are any matters affecting property or land, registered as a Local Land Charge, which an intended purchaser should be aware of (LLC1).

It also reveals other relevant information held by the Council as a whole (Local Enquiries - CON29). The information given on a search relates only to the property or land identified by the search address and accompanying plan, which should be edged in red.

The two parts of the search together will reveal, for example, planning permissions, conservation areas, tree preservation orders, development plan status, road schemes, contaminated land etc.

Our Local Land Charges (LLC1) register has now migrated to HM Land Registry's national register. You will be able to access a new digital service through their Portal, Business Gateway and on HM Land Registry's GOV.UK pages.

High Peak Borough Council will continue to carry out CON29 searches.
