I agree this is a storm in a tea cup from the consumers and the conveyancers perspective. This is the end result of a long campaign (more than a decade) by the regulated search sector to level the playing field. It also recognises that the production of CON29 is a commercial activity undertaken by the Local Authorities and wider issues such as anti-competitive behaviour can now be pursued more easily against those few (and it is only a few) LA's that abuse their position as custodians of data . It really is an industry issue and a principle more than a consumer one and should ultimately be of benefit to home buyers.
