Local Land Charges Searches

About Local Land Charges Searches

Before buying a property you need to request a Local Land Charges Search. This will identify things like road-building plans nearby or if a public footpath crosses the property.

A solicitor, licensed conveyancer or personal search company usually applies for a search to be made, but private individuals or organisations can also make them.

When you send in your search request, please provide two copies of an up-to-date Ordnance Survey plan with the boundary of the property clearly marked. 

Please complete the land charges forms, save them, then email them to landcharges@waverley.gov.uk. We will ring you upon receipt to organise payment.
