Property searches

When you buy a property or piece of land, it is important that you or your solicitor arrange for a search of the register. This will tell you about any restrictions (charges) which may affect the property or land.

A search is in 2 parts:

How to apply for an LLC1 search

Our Local Land Charges register (LLC1) has moved to the National Digital Register. This can be accessed through either the HM Land Registry portal, Business Gateway or GOV.UK.

A local land charges search identifies restrictions or prohibitions on the use of property or land, such as planning permissions or listed building status. They enable a buyer to make an informed decision about a purchase.

How to apply for a CON29 search

Pay for CON29

You can use the council’s own portal in the following ways:

First-time users will have to register to use the portal.

Alternatively, you may submit your CON29 search through the NLIS hub. For more information and hub fees, visit NLIS.

Important things to remember when submitting a search

We are only able to search known and recognised addresses. We cannot search a plot number or an unregistered property number. If you’re unsure of the address, send a location plan with the site outlined to landcharges@enfield.gov.uk for us to confirm before submitting your search.

Online searches - National Land Information Service

Solicitors can submit full searches to us through the National Land Information Service (NLIS) hub. NLIS provides a single point of electronic access to all land and property information. For more information, visit NLIS.
