  • Q:

    What are the CON29 Questions?

    A:

    The CON 29 enquiries questionnaire, which forms part of a full official search, contains many "Warning" questions, the answers to which you will not find on any of the statutory registers. Examples of the information only to be found by submitting a CON 29 are given below:- •Compulsory Purchase Orders •Proposed Tree Preservation Orders •Many informal notices under planning and highways laws not found on any register •Road proposals or schemes (including road widening) •Proposed enforcement action or breach of conditions notices If you rely on a personal search from a solicitor or personal search company may we remind you that any information they obtain is not covered by Section 10(3) of the Local Land Charges Act 1975 which relates to compensation for loss. The only way to receive this information is to submit the official LLC1 and CON 29 R forms.

  • Q:

    What are Additional Enquiries?

    A:

    In addition to these forms you can also submit an additional (customised) enquiry of the Local Authority subject to their acceptance. Usually these questions are along the lines of: "Please supply information of all Planning Applications received within the last five years within a 50 metre radius of the property." We cannot answer questions which are subjective, for example: "Please supply information of all Planning Applications within a 50 metre radius of the property which may affect the use and enjoyment of the property." This is because we cannot determine what an individual may or may not deem as affecting their use or enjoyment. This additional enquiry (Part II additional enquiries) should be typed on a separate sheet of paper and enclosed with the Search. The Council reserves the right to refuse to process any additional enquiry where it either does not hold the requested information or it considers the request unreasonable.
