Law Society revised CON 29R and CON 29O forms – 4 July 2016

17th February 2016

The Law Society has confirmed that revisions of the conveyancing forms CON 29R and CON 29O forms will go live on 4 July 2016. HMRC have also agreed to delay adding VAT to Local Authority CON 29 searches until 4th July to coincide with the introduction of the new editions of CON29R and CON29O forms.

The launch process will be as follows:-

Until end of 1 July 2016

  • If a current CON 29R and/or CON 29O search is received in electronic or paper form before the end of 1 July 2016, the local authority will provide replies to the current form. 

2 July 2016 or later - current forms

  • If a current form is received electronically at any time on 2 July 2016 or later, replies will be provided to the new CON 29R and CON 29O enquiries.
  • If a current form is received by post, DX or by hand at any time on 2 July 2016 or later, it is for the local authority to decide whether to provide replies to the new or current form. 
  • If a current form is still being processed after the end of 1 July 2016 (whenever the form was received previously) (eg it was entered on local authority systems before or on 1 July and is still being processed after that date), the local authority will provide replies to the current form.

4 July 2016

The new CON 29R and CON 29O forms will go live and local authorities will accept the new forms commencing on this date. 

We will add the new versions of these forms in FormEvo nearer to July.
