As reported in our June newsletter, The Law Society's revised CON29 and CON29O forms will go live on 4 July 2016. We have been warned by an increasing number of local authorities to expect delays during this transition, as they make the necessary changes to their own processes. Our ordering platform contains live ETA information for all Regulated Local and Council Sourced Searches. You will also be notified of turnaround in your order confirmation emails. Here at OneSearch, we've been working hard to ensure everything is in place before the changes come into force. What will change? Our reports will include the extra questions as detailed below, which will be seamlessly integrated into the colour coded layout for ease of interpretation:
- Q2 – now incorporates Public Rights of Way and new questions 2.2 - 2.5 have been inserted.
- Q3.3 – Drainage Matters. New questions 3.3 (a), (b), (c) regarding Sustainable Drainage Schemes (SuDS)
- Q3.10 – Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL). New questions 3.10 (a) to (h)
- Q3.15 – Assets of Community Value. New questions 3.15 (a) and (b)
