Local Land Charges

Searches on Additional Parcels

Where searches are being carried out for separate transactions, a separate search requisition (LLC1, Con29 or Personal) must be made, and the appropriate fee paid, in respect of each parcel of land.

However, one requisition may cover more than one parcel when it is required for the purposes of a single transaction and the several parcels have a common boundary or are separated only by a road, railway, river, stream or canal. The fee is then calculated at a standard search fee for the first property and a reduction called the additional parcel fee for the second property and so on.

An additional parcel in this context means land, including a building or part of a building, which is separately occupied or separately rated or, if not occupied or rated, is in separate ownership.

For the purpose of this definition an owner is the person who, in his own right or as trustee for any other person, is entitled to receive the rack rent of land, or, where the land is not let at a rack rent, would be so entitled if it were so let.

It is the responsibility of the enquirer to provide evidence to support a request for multiple parcels on one requisition.
