Freedom of Information Request

Local Authority Search

Received: 16 September 2020

I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following information from whomever deals with local authority search (also known as local land charges search) enquiries from solicitors, as part of the conveyancing process.

Could you please provide the following information:
1. Your current waiting/turnaround time for a local authority search (also known as local land charges search) enquiry to be completed.
If feasible, we would like a waiting time for each type of search (LLC1, CON29, CON290). If this is not possible, a waiting time for all search types is fine.

2. Data on how many of these searches you completed in these months:
* August 2018
* August 2019
* August 2020
In this instance, we only need one total search figure per month stated (not figures for LLC1, CON29, CON290). If historic data is not available, then a figure just for August 2020 if fine.

Please provide the information via email (responding to this address).

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12, please provide advice and assistance, under the Section 16 obligations of the Act, as to how I can refine my request.

If you have any queries please don't hesitate to contact me via email or phone and I will be very happy to clarify what I am asking for and discuss the request, my details are outlined below.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to your response.
