Local Land Charges

The Local Land Charges Service is provided for those purchasing property or land within the Carmarthenshire County Council area. The purpose of the service is to disclose to the prospective purchaser information, which may affect a particular property or plot of land.

Every time a property or a piece of land is purchased, leased or a valuation is carried out, a Search is sent to the Local Authority. The Search discloses any matters that have been registered as a Local Land Charge, or information held by us which the buyer would like to know about.

The Local Land Charges Unit maintains a Register that is constantly updated in order to provide answers to Search requests. When submitting searches:

  • Please ensure that an up to date Ordnance Survey location plan (scale 1/2500) is submitted with every search application with the boundary of the property duly edged in red.
  • Please complete the CON29 form correctly. You can purchase the form from any  stationers that sell legal forms. The forms contain a copyright acknowledgement to the Law Society. Information on additional side, back or abutting roads will only be answered if they are specified by name in Box 'C' or referred to and highlighted on the submitted location plan.
  • Please fill in your full postal address in Box 'F'.
  • Please note that we do not reply to Part 2 Optional Enquiry 4.

If you require a copy of a document please contact the Local Land Charges Unit attaching a copy of the relevant Schedule from the LLC1 reply.

The Local Land Charges Unit does not hold information on Highways, Planning or Environmental Health matters. Therefore, to save unnecessary delay please contact those Departments if you require further assistance. A charge may be levied for administration or photocopying costs.


Following HMRCs very recent decision that CON29R and CON29O products submitted to the Local Authority are considered to be subject to VAT at the standard rate of 20% effective from 1st January we will be increasing our fees for the CON29R and CON29O products by 20%. The statutory LLC1 Official Certificate of search is unaffected by this change. Please note that we will not be charging a one off admin fee for optional enquiries raised without the Con29R form from 1st January, 2017.
