Inspect the Local Land Charges Register

Personal Search Agents and visiting our offices

The Local Land Charges service continues to follow government advice to reduce the spread of Coronavirus by temporarily removing the ability to inspect the Local Land Charges Register at the council offices. Since March 2020 we have replaced the facility with results being emailed to customers.

We appreciate that this may increase lead times in some circumstances, particularly as demand increases, however, it will reduce unnecessary risk to staff and visitors calling at the Civic Centre. It also enables this element of our service to continue and for us to deliver a consistent service to all customers despite restrictions and limitations being in place that are beyond our control.

Please be assured, we endeavour to continue delivering the best possible service we can to all of our customers in these unprecedented times.

Most (although not all) information to answer CON29 questions can be accessed free of charge by inspection of public records.  Please see our Access to Records page for further information.
