Services and fee list

When submitting a full 'Local Land Charges Requisition for Search' you should include forms LLC1 and CON29 in duplicate (these forms are obtainable from Solicitors or Law Stationers). You may wish to submit CON29O in addition to LLC1/CON29 if you need optional questions. You should also send a cheque made payable to 'London Borough of Richmond upon Thames' (LBRuT) for the correct fee.

One plan is required with every search requisition; please ensure the extent of land and property to be searched is clearly highlighted in red.
