Local land charges

A Local Land Charges Search is for people purchasing or re-mortgaging a property or land and wish to find out information that may affect it.

How do I submit a search request?

Please complete the official forms such as the LLC1 and CON29 (We do not supply copies of any of these forms. They can be obtained from any law stationer), together with a good quality plan with the boundaries of the property clearly marked. Due to COVID-19 you are asked to submit search requests electronically to locallandcharges@hart.gov.uk until further notice as we currently cannot process searches submitted by post.

Searches can be submitted:

The cost of a Standard Search (LLC1 & CON29R) submitted this way is £146.00

Alternatively, paper based searches are accepted and can be posted to us using the address below:

Land Charges Department
135 Eastern Avenue
Milton Park
OX14 4SB

The cost of a Standard Search (LLC1 & CON29R) submitted this way is £181.00 and will take longer to process.


For a list of all of our charges, please see the LLC fees sheet

Payments can be made online (please specify the search address in the address field).

Land Registry

We are unable to help with land ownership or property boundaries as this is dealt with by the Land Registry. You can find out more about Land Registry Land Charges on gov.uk.

Personal Searchers

Hart has made an online portal available to help access the Local Land Charges Register. It makes finding most Local Land Charges quicker and easier by showing entries on a map; it also includes a range of useful search and sorting functions.

Unfortunately, we are unable to ensure the portal is a complete copy of the Local Land Charges Register. The portal therefore must not be relied upon on its own in order to conduct a Local Land Charges search within the Hart district. Hart cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information held on the portal alone and you should take adequate precautions if you wish to rely on the information.

If you are a Personal Search Agent, you may want to use Hart’s online planning portal  and mapping system to verify and cross reference your results. Please read the user guide before using the system. If you are still uncertain about anything that does, or does not appear on a search, please contact the Land Charges team for further assistance either via the feedback form or contact details provided on this page. The Land Charges team will promptly investigate and respond to your enquiry.
