Local Land Charges
District and Unitary Councils are currently required to provide a Local Land Charges (LLC) function which involves holding and maintaining a statutory LLC Register. Alongside this is the provision of a Local Authority property search service requiring professional, skilled staff accessing and interpreting data from the LLCR and also other council held data to accurately answer a specific set of questions. The customer base for this service can include conveyancing solicitors, licensed conveyancers, Personal Search companies, on-line search providers and the public.
This course is suitable for District and Unitary council staff who are new to the work or have being doing the job for less than 2 years. This could include managers who have had the function added to their portfolio.
It is not necessarily suitable for Highways authorities where there is no Local Land Charges Function and a limited CON29 answering function.
This course aims to help staff understand the purpose of the Local Land Charges function and how it fits in with other council departments and the buying and selling of land and property.
It will cover:
What Local Land Charges are and where they come from
The LLC Register and how to keep it updated
The LLC1 form
The CON29 2016 questions and where the information is held
Handling different types of search requests
Fees and parcels of land
Problem solving (delegates are welcome to bring queries along)
Delegates are encouraged to ask questions, bring along examples they have and to make the sessions interactive.
