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.
The Land Charges payment systems has been updates - you are now able to submit multiple searches (of different types, including adding Part 2 questions), attach plan/s and calculate the overall fee to make one payment.
There is no longer a need to contact the Land Charges Team after making the payment as the system is now fully automated.
Please note, all search requests now need to be accompanied with a plan, with the boundary of the land in question marked in red.
