Official Search Services – Fees charged
Search of the Local Land Charges Register – Form LLC1
This reveals all registrable charges e.g. financial charges, tree preservation orders, conservation area orders, smoke control and planning applications (which have been approved with conditions from 1 August 1977). As part of the official search service all entries, including planning applications are checked to ensure that they relate to the property/site in the original search request. For fees please see downloadable fee list.
Enquiries of the Local Authority (2007 edition) – Form Con29R
Enquiries 1 to 3 deal with enquiries relating to planning, highways and environmental services which may affect the property or land. Relevant information is interpreted and analysed, and the responses are checked by various teams across the council.
Optional Enquiries of the Local Authority (2007 edition) – Form Con29O
Enquiries 4 to 22 are charged for individually and we will only reply if the applicant places a tick in the appropriate box on the front of the form. You will need to send two copies of each form to our office with the fees.
All the above products are supplied with the assurance that relevant background information has been interpreted and analysed where necessary, and that responses have been checked by officers of this council. You will normally get your results within 2 to 3 working days.
Leeds downloadable search request form
You can submit search requests using Forms LLC1 and the Con29R/O using the post or e-mail. To make it easier to submit searches direct and reduce paperwork, we have created a Leeds City Council search request form. This is a shortened version of the LLC1 and Con29 that contains all the information we require to process a search. The form and guidance in pdf format can be downloaded from the Documents section on this page.
Paying for searches
As of 01 February 2016 we operate an invoice system and prepayment is no longer required.
Send your search request through the post or email and you will receive either a telephone call or an email confirming the fee you will be required to pay.
If you confirm to us (by phone or email) that you are happy with the fee, search processing will commence. You will then be sent an invoice within a few days. If you would monthly invoicing please let us know and we will make the necessary arrangements.
