Local land charges fees

Change in local land charges

The HMRC decision is that Con29 and Con29O products submitted to the local authority are considered to be refined data and are therefore subject to VAT at the standard rate of 20%. The Council implemented VAT on 1 February 2017.

The statutory LLC1 Official Certificate of Search is unaffected by the HMRC decision.

Charges which include VAT for searches received on or after 1 October 2018 are published below. For your records, our VAT number is 178 1773 29.
