        Transparency of charges

        Local land charges from 1st April 2018
        including CON29R fees per question-2008 Regulations). Our fees must be set in accordance with new Government legislation see extract below.

        “Transparency in relation to setting of charges

        1.—(1) During each financial year, a local authority must publish a statement setting out

        (a) the estimates the local authority has made under regulation 6(2) (estimates of total costs and estimates of numbers of requests) in respect of the unit charge for the following financial year;

        (b) the basis for those estimates; and the amount of the unit charge it proposes for the following financial year.”

        Information published for the end of the 31 March 2018 financial year
        The estimated total costs of maintaining the Local Land Charges Register and answering property searches at Thanet District Council for the financial year 2018/2019 are £324,000. This estimate is based on the approved budget for the section.

        The estimated numbers of requests for searches are as follows:

        2018/2019
        Personal searches 2080
        LLC1 110
        CON29R 2
        Full standard search 2060
        These estimates are based upon the assumption that search numbers will remain in line with the financial year 2017/2018.

        Further information is also provided on the access document as to the information available from Thanet District Council.
