New Greater Cambridge Land Charges Fee Schedule 2020-2021

The merging of the Local Land Charges departments of South Cambridgeshire District and Cambridge City Councils on 1 April 2020 will result in one single fee schedule. This means that there will be more changes to the schedule than you might normally expect to see in a yearly update but has been calculated in line with government legislation and is reflective of the costs of delivering the services we offer. Therfore, this will create interruption to the service and impact on Personal Searches. 

Local Land Charges Systems Transition – Interruption to service

Due to the transition to a new Land Charges back office system there will be interruption to the service.

All searches received by 12 noon on Friday 27 March will be processed with our current fees and system.

All searches received after 12 noon on Friday 27 March 2020 will be registered from Wednesday 1 April 2020 under the new fee schedule and system. 

Impact on and Changes to Personal Searches

Due to the transition described above, we will not be able to book personal search appointments between Monday 30 March and Friday 10 April 2020.

From Friday 10 April personal search appointments will be changing. As a combined service you will be able to request searches from us for both council areas. There will be 3 appointment slots a day, each of which can contain up to 10 addresses for search. Results can be collected from Cambridge Guildhall reception, in the same way as you currently do for Cambridge City personal searches.
