Land charges and searches

A Local Authority Search is a service for people purchasing or re-mortgaging a property or land within the Havant Borough who want to find out information that may affect it.

It is designed to protect potential purchasers of the land or property and will tell them about any existing agreements and restrictions (called 'Charges') which might affect their decision to go ahead with the purchase.

The first part of the search - the LLC1 form - will reveal all the charges registered against the property, for example Conditional Planning Permissions and Tree Preservation Orders. 

These charges are binding on successive owners of the property or land.

The second part of the search - the CON29 form - will provide other relevant information held by various departments of the council such as Local Plan information, nearby road schemes and notices etc. under the Planning Acts.
