Onsite inspection of the local land charges register
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.
Further updates will be published as and when the guidelines change.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Onsite inspections can be booked from 48 hours before you wish to come and inspect the register. Please email the Property Information Team and provide the address(es) of the properties you wish to search.
On the day of the inspection, simply view the relevant documents at the Planning and Building Control Terminal in reception. You can make notes from the screen but printing is not possible.
