Land Charges Personal Search

You have the opportunity to carry out a personal search online without having to visit the local land charges offices. Personal search requests can be submitted through our online portal and you will be notified of the results via email.

Personal searchers submitted through the portal are verified by a local land charges officer for a small fee of £5. We aim to return the results within 24 hours, therefore saving time and ensuring accuracy.

Alternatively, anyone can search in the local land charges register free of charge.

To arrange an appointment to access the register please telephone  the local land charges team on 01482 613 258.

Once your appointment is confirmed we will need the following information from you via email –

  • date and time of your appointment 
  • name and address of the person making the personal search 
  • address or description of the property or land

Personal searches only cover parts of the local land  charges register. Planning records are maintained in a separate register. You may need to make alternative arrangements to search other records. 

Supplementary information, including answers to CON 29R and CON 290 are available to anyone carrying out a personal search. Simply submit the request via our online portal.
