Extent of highways
Contact us if you want to enquire about the extent of highway land that is maintainable at public expense.
We will then carry out a check and prepare a digitised extent of highway plan. We also provide responses to highway questions of CON29 searches.

CON29 local land charge searches – VAT
Following a recent decision by HMRC, all CON29 local land charge searches answered by us are subject to VAT (as from 1 Jan 2017).
This means there is a 20% increase to our fees for answering CON29 Questions.
Payment should be made in advance, either by cheque (payable to Hertfordshire County Council) or as a card payment by phone.
