The local land charges section carries out all official searches of the LLC1, Con29 and Con29O
The local land charges section maintains the local land charges register for the Wyre area. A local land charge is a binding obligation on property or land, these are known as charges and are binding against successive owners by local authorities.
The register is updated daily in order to provide answers to search requests, using information provided by various departments of the council and county council, as a statutory requirement is placed on all local authorities within England and Wales, to generate, maintain and regularly update a local land charges register and to provide local searches.
Any charges registered on a local land charges register would not normally be disclosed in the title deeds or by an inspection of the property/land itself. Charges maybe of a financial or non-financial nature.
