Did you know?

  • All of the information required to complete a CON29R form is available from West Somerset Council.
  • Our average turnaround time is 3 to 4 working days and every effort is made to get them back quicker.
  • We are connected electronically to the National Land Information Service (NLIS) and TM Search Choice and can both receive and return searches electronically.  
  • Using the National Land Information Service (NLIS) or TM Search Choice means no delays in waiting for searches through the post.
  • We only provide support for local land charges searches that have been provided by West Somerset Council.
  • We do not provide follow on support for personal/private searches.
  • Our searches are packed full of information that you won't get from a personal search.
  • The local land charges staff are fully trained and able to respond to your follow on enquiries quickly, normally within 24 hours.
  • Our searches do not rely on indemnity insurance to cover missing information, our full local official authority search requires no additional insurance.
  • Our indemnity insurance does not expire. Your client could move into the property and discover a problem that should have been identified on the search but discover that the insurance on their private search has expired. Do not take that chance. The official West Somerset Council local authority search has insurance that lasts long after the property has been transferred.
