Land Charges 2017
Almost all transactions involving the transfer of ownership of dwellings, commercial properties or land will require a Local Authority Search to be conducted as part of the conveyancing process. This search gives vital information so that the purchaser is aware of any charges or responsibilities appertaining to the property when contracts are exchanged.
The following form will enable a conveyancer/solicitor to complete and electronically send a search to Boston Borough Council, which means inputting details of a search only once (therefore saving time in typing individual forms).
Once submitted and received, an email will be sent confirming the details of the search required. This email will also give a unique reference number - please quote this when contacting the Land Charges Section at any time during the process of the search.
Once the search has been completed by the Land Charges Section, the solicitor/conveyancer will receive the search results including all relevant documentation (LLC1, Con29R, Con29O forms and plans).
Due to staffing issues and the large amount of searches being received by the local land charges team our current turnaround time is 18 to 20 working days.

Please have already scanned and prepared a plan indicating the location of the search. The plan cannot be any bigger than 2mb. (To get the plan down to an acceptable size use your edit imaging tool and decrease the file to 1000 x 15000 pixels).
