Local authority searches
Due to the current situation in regards to COVID-19, we are currently unable to offer an onsite Personal Search service. This is in keeping with current Government guidelines for social distancing and avoiding unnecessary travel and contact. Personal Searches can still be ordered online through the Local Land Charges Direct portal.
Local Land Charges searches are still being processed at this time but please be advised that our turnaround time will be slightly increased from 1-2 working days to 3-4 working days. This is still within the LLCi guidelines which is 10 working days.
Please be advised that due to essential maintenance the online Local Land Charge Service will be unavailable from 30th September at 8pm with a planned return to normal service on 5th October from 10am.
Further updates will be published as and when the guidelines change.
