(Updated 2 May 2023)
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:
- Local Land Charge Register (LLC1)
- CON29 additional enquiries
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
You can use the council’s own portal in the following ways:
- Order your search online
- Select addresses from the council's central database
- Submit search requests directly from your browser to the local land charges team
- Maintain a history of your search requests and results
- Download results
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
- Make sure the property is within Enfield by using the council’s gazetteer
- Submit the correct fee, quoting your EENF reference number
- Provide an accurate and up to date location plan, with the property boundary clearly outlined
- Avoid outlining multiple properties
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 firstname.lastname@example.org for us to confirm before submitting your search.
