Land Charges are searches of property history. They take place when a property is changing hands, usually by solicitors acting on behalf of the purchasers. Searches are submitted to us and we provide information about planning applications, building regulation applications, enforcement activity, conditions or other charges on the property or land being sold.
The Local Land Charges Team accept requests for a search online.
Firstly make the payment online and then e-mail the Local land Charges Team with your payment reference number and the details of the search required.
Please note that as from the 1 May 2017 all search requests will need to be accompanied with a plan, with the boundary of the land in question marked in red.
