Following HRMC's recent decision regarding the CON29 and CON29O forms, we will be adding VAT to our fees from 31 March 2017.

We will not work on your search until payment has been made.

The service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. If you are requesting searches on a regular basis, to simplify the process we are happy to set up an account and invoice on a monthly basis. Please email our local land charges team for further information.

Important: Changes to the pay you pay

The council is changing the way customers and businesses pay for services.

From 16 January 2017 the council will no longer have the facility to accept cash or cheques and if you are currently sending payments for Local Land Charges, you need to arrange an alternative payment method.

The easiest way is to pay online by visiting our website, or as mentioned above, we are happy to set up an account and invoice on a monthly basis.

For more information, please contact Customer Services.

For answers to individual CON29 enquiries please see our CON29 individual fees.
