Local Land Charges
Land Charges are searches of property history. They take place when a property is changing hands, usually by solicitors acting on behalf of the purchasers. Searches are submitted to us and we provide information about planning applications, building regulation applications, enforcement activity, conditions or other charges on the property or land being sold. A guide to our Land Charges service is at the bottom of the page.
