The CON 29 guidance notes have been published. These accompany the updated CON 29 forms that have to be used from 4 July 2016.

The notes are issued by the Law Society in consultation with Land Data, the Local Land Charges Institute and the Local Government Association, to provide guidance to local authorities in replying to CON 29 and CON 29O enquiries of local authorities. They are also intended to provide guidance when interpreting replies. Following the guidance is not mandatory, and the notes are not legal advice.
