East Dorset Local Land Charges - local authority searches

East Dorset District Council and Christchurch Borough Council are working in partnership. We process Local Land Charges as a single team at the Christchurch Civic offices.

All information on this page is for land or properties in the East Dorset District Council boundary. You can check which area your land or property is in if you're not sure.

We maintain a Statutory Register of Local Land Charges. We update it daily to make sure the information given to conveyancers is accurate.

We also deal with requests for local authority searches. This involves:

  • providing responses to LLC1 enquiries
  • facilitate the answers to the CON29 enquiry form

Register to use our online local land charge service

You can register to use our online local land charge service free of charge. If you use our service you just pay for searches that you submit at the cost shown on the fees table.

Alternatively you can post LLC1 and CON 29 to us.

We are connected to the National Land Information Service (NLIS)at level 3.

We do not provide an expedited service. Searches are always returned at the earliest opportunity.
