An official Local Authority search for a commercial property or site provides the same detail to that included in a Local Authority search for a residential property.
A Council (Official) Local Authority Search provides accurate and up-to-date information based on a Local Authority’s records of issues affecting a commercial property or larger piece of land, including details on planning proposals, traffic schemes, conservation areas and compulsory purchase orders. It has two forms, the Con29 enquiries form (Part 1) and the LLC1 (local land charges) form, plus the option to order questions from the Con29 Part 2. Part 2 enquiries include issues such as food safety notices and hazardous substance consents, and are charged per question.
A Council (Official) Local Authority Search can work out more expensive than a Regulated (Personal) Local Authority Search (which contains the same information), however it is fully guaranteed by the Local Authority.
