Local Land Charges Search

Information about Local Land Charges, local searches and other points of contact.

Purchasers and re-mortgagers of properties within the Borough will usually need to carry out a search of the Local Land Charges Register to establish whether there are any entries recorded for the property in the register. If a full search is submitted (i.e. a search of the Local Land Charges Register plus the Con.29 form) this would reveal other things which may affect individual properties, such as adopted roads, outstanding notices, potential enforcement matters and proposed traffic schemes.


During the current working restrictions, we are hoping to deliver our normal service.  There may be some delays so please bear with us.  We will keep you informed if there is any change to this.

Submitting A Local Search

When submitting a local search, please ensure that the postal address is clear and correct and that a plan is submitted in duplicate wherever possible. This will help to avoid any unnecessary delays. 

An official local search takes approximately 10 working days to complete.
