We often get asked about the difference between a Regulated Local Authority and a Council Local Authority search. Both types of Local Authority search use the same CON29 enquiry form and both provide the same information on Local Land Charges, but there are a few key differences that you should be aware of. These are summarised in the table below:
|Council (Official) LA Search||Regulated (Personal) LA Search|
|Price||Varies by Local Authority||£84.00 (gross) for all Local Authorities in England and Wales|
|Liability||Fully guaranteed by the Local Authority||Backed by £2m PI cover|
Includes "Summary for Conveyancers" and "Information for Buyers" to reduce queries.
