Local Land Charges Register and Information



We are responsible for maintaining the statutory register of Local Land Charges; and completing requests from solicitors for official certificates of search LLC1 and CON29 and CON29O enquiries.

Different Local Land Charge Searches


The LLC1 provides information from the Local Land Charges Register and contains information registered against a property or land. This could be information such as Tree Preservation Orders, any financial charges against the property or enforcement notices.  


The CON29 contains two parts (the CON29 and the CON29O). The CON29 contains a list of standard enquiries which allows the potential purchaser to find out specific information relating to the property.  This can include information on matters such as the planning history of the property and any road schemes affecting the property.

The CON29O contains a list of 19 optional enquiries which may also be requested by the potential purchaser to gain additional information about the property such as information on any gas pipelines or environment and pollution notices.

How to Submit a Search 

Please note:  We only accept electronic applications for Local Land Charges searches

Search requests can be submitted electronically by completing this downloadable Local Land Charge searches form.

Please complete all the required details and submit your request together with a plan to landcharges@selby.gov.uk.

Unfortunately we are not able to answer optional enquiries 7,  8 and 16 in section 'E', please forward these requests directly to the providers. Details of this can be found below. We will not take any payment for these questions.

If you would like to pay by credit or debit card, please contact Local Land Charges on 01757 705101 after submitting your request to enable payment to be made over the phone. Your request will then be processed and the search result will be returned to you via email, so please provide an email address on your application. If paying by cheque, please make the cheque for the correct fee payable to Selby District Council and post it to us at the Civic Centre, Doncaster Road, Selby, YO8 9FT for the attention of Land Charges.

When payment is received, your request will be processed and the search result returned to you via email.

You can also search the Local Land Charges Register online. The National Land Information Service (NLIS) connects directly to land and property information held by councils, central government and other official sources of land and property data. It is fully accessible, authoritative and comprehensive. Searches can be submitted to us using NLIS via one of its licensed channels: www.searchflow.co.uk or www.thameswater-propertysearches.co.uk.


Information to Provide

All searches submitted, either directly to us or via this service must also provide a suitable OS style map with the site area clearly outlined in red and for clarification purposes the map must include a minimum of 2 street names. Searches submitted with a map not complying with this criteria will be rejected.

Plot addresses are not accepted, we only accept the full official registered address for properties. If a request is submitted with a plot address instead of the registered address, the request will be rejected. When submitting requests for properties on new developments, a plot plan is required which has the search property outlined in red. Also a development plan for the whole of the relevant development is required. This plan needs to have the search property outlined in red and also at least two existing roads clearly labelled for location purposes.

Not accepted


Plan with 1 or less roads labelled

Plan with at least two clearly labelled roads

Search area not clearly outlined

Search area clearly outlined in red

Plot addresses

Full Official Registered address

Plan without roads that lead to the property shown

Development plan with at least two existing roads clearly labelled and also all roads leading up to the property shown

Brief phrases written in Box C

Up to 3 specific roads labelled on plan and specified in Box C or coloured in a specific colour and specified in Box C

Parcels of Land

If a request contains more than one property or piece of land (separated by a road or river) the extra properties or pieces of land may qualify as parcels of land. If the properties/pieces of land are directly adjacent to each other or only separated by a road or river and all of the properties are being purchased in one transaction these would qualify as a parcel of land. Each additional parcel of land will generate a cost (please refer to the table at the top of this page for full details). If the properties/pieces of land do not fall under these criteria, the properties/pieces of land will need submitting as separate search requests.

Box B and C – Description of Property and Other Roads

When submitting an application form please make sure your application includes as much information as possible to assist with the search. The use of phrases such as “all roads” “any roads abutting” or “any or all roads in the vicinity” are invalid for the purposes of identification, also un-named roads cannot be identified. Where a road name is not available a plan of the roads must be submitted with your application. Poor quality or inadequate plans will result in cases being cancelled and mean that they have to be re-submitted.

The necessary information will be passed on to the Highways Department at the county council for them to provide answers to the search. We would appreciate your assistance with providing the above information to make sure searches are not delayed or made invalid

Personal Searches

We are able to resume personal search appointments from Thursday 14th October 2021. 

When entering the Civic Centre for your appointment, you will need to scan the QR code displayed on the entrance wall using your NHS app.  and notify the receptionist of your arrival.

You will be required to wear a mask when you moving throughout the building, therefore, you will need to wear one until you are seated in the meeting room with the member of staff, and again when you depart the meeting room until you are outside. Once seated there will be a Perspex screen between yourself and the member of staff.  You are able to remove your mask during the appointment when seated, if you would prefer. Hand sanitiser will be available throughout the building and in the meeting room.

You will be asked your Covid status prior to your appointment and we ask that you do not attend if you have any Covid symptoms. 

Personal searches can be carried out by anyone and this involves inspecting the Local Land Charges Register.    It is the responsibility of the person carrying out the Personal Search to identify the land/property and to make a note of information held on the register.  Selby District Council does not have an obligation to answer any supplementary questions when a person is making a Personal Search.  Additionally, no official certificate of search is provided for a Personal Search.

If you would like to carry out a Personal Search, you will need to book an appointment.  These are carried out at Selby District Council, Civic Centre, Doncaster Road, Selby YO8 9FT and can be booked by ringing 01757 705101.

There is free parking at the Civic Centre.  Please use postcode YO8 9BX if using a Sat Nav

Please note the following when making appointments: please allow a minimum of 48 hours' notice for an appointment.  You will not be able to conduct a personal search unless you have made an appointment.

Appointments can only be made for a specified 40 minute time slot.  It is essential that you arrive on time as assistance will not be available to you outside of the booked time.  If you require additional time you may be asked to arrange another appointment which may be on a different day.

Appointments are available on a Monday and Thursday only.  40 minute slots are available at 9.30am, 10.15am, 11am or 11.45am.  Please book an appointment using the details provided above.  Appointments will be made on a first come first served basis.

When booking your appointment you will need to specify:

  • The appointment slot you would like to request (if the requested one is not available, the next available one will be offered)
  • Name and address of the person making the Personal Search, and
  • Which property addresses you wish to view or details of the area to be searched if the address is not available.
