Explains who maintains registers and provides the search service regarding local land charges and common land and village greens. When a search is required, cost of a search (to the public and the council), how the service works and who can use the service.
The local land charges team provides the following services:
A Local Authority search is required in connection with the purchase of any land/property within the East Riding of Yorkshire. A search is usually instigated by a client's solicitor, but anybody can request one.
If you require information on potentially contaminated land, and other environmental issues, please see our land pollution page.
As of 31 March 2017 following HMRC's decisions that CON29R and CON29O products submitted to the Local Authority are considered to be subject to VAT at the standard rate of 20%, we will be increasing our fees for the CON29R and CON29O by 20%. The statutory LLC1 Official Search Certificate of Search is unaffected by this change.
