A personal search provides basic Local Land Charges Register information on a property or area of land. The search does not reveal any planning information, in accordance with Rule 7 of the Local Land Charges Rules 1977; planning information is readily and freely accessible by using the Planning Portal. In order to complete the remainder of your search you will need to access this information; you can do this via our online mapping system.
Making a search request
We can only search one property per request. You can ask multiple questions but they all must relate to one property.
You need to submit:
- Customer/Company name, telephone number and email address
- Full address of the property or land against which making the enquiry about
- An up-to-date plan (to scale) with the boundary edged in red.
The plan should clearly show an authorised copyright agreement statement. We will not accept screenshots or grabs from web based mapping programs. Failure to send a correct plan will result in the search request being suspended pending receipt of an acceptable plan.
We will provide information on the area identified in your plan and it is your responsibility to ensure that the identified land is correct.
Please email the required documents to:
Roadways, footways, footpaths, public rights of way, land required for public purposes, land to be acquired for roadworks - £4.43 (each)
Nearby road schemes, nearby railway schemes, traffic schemes - £4.90 (each)
Outstanding enforcement notices (highways) - £4.43
Please note that all fees are non-refundable
All searches are returned by email within a maximum of 10 working days.
It should be understood that the foregoing is the information available at the present time in respect of the property and the giving of such information will neither bind the Councils future action nor impose any legal liability upon the Council or any officer of the Council.
If a Personal Search, rather than a Local Authority Search, is used and an error is made in extracting the information provided, then the third-party search company, or their clients, would have no claim under Section 10 of the Local Land Charges Act 1975, which relates to compensation for loss.
