Local Land Charges Search
WHAT IS THE LOCAL LAND CHARGES REGISTER?
The Local Land Charges Register is maintained by the council under the Local Land Charges Act 1975 and highlights whether there are any enforceable obligations or charges (financial and non financial) registered against specific properties.
This is not a public register therefore to obtain any information that could possibly be held on a particular property an LLC1 request should be submitted to Local Land Charges accompanied by the required fee.
WHY CARRY OUT A LOCAL LAND CHARGES SEARCH?
It is essential to understand that a charge in the Local Land Charges Register is a charge on the property therefore it is vital to see if any charges exist before purchasing a property to ascertain if there are any legal obligations attached to the charge.
Information on how to submit a search can be found here.
Blackpool Council has received the ICO Guidance document in relation to accessing and charging for information and is currently in the process of interpreting its contents.
The Council is not obliged to follow the guidance of the ICO on this issue, as it is not statutory and we have chosen not to follow this guidance at this moment in time pending legal opinion which the LGA is seeking on behalf of the sector.
While we seek such guidance, property search information will of course remain available to search companies under our existing access and charging regime under the Local Authorities (England)(Charges for Property Searches) Regulations 2008.
