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.
