Personal searches

We have a statutory duty to make the Local Land Charges Register available in order to facilitate Personal Searches.

We also has a duty to provide access to all property information it may hold to enable a third party to answer CON29 enquiries ('Enquiries of a Local Authority').

With effect from 30th July 2010 the Council will not levy the statutory fee of £22.00 due to a change of the Land Charges Regulations.
