The Local Land Charges Register provides information about land and properties, including certain types of payment that may be secured on it or restrictions that apply to it. Your solicitor will normally search the register for you when you buy a house or a piece of land but you can also request a search yourself by contacting our Land Charges team.

From Monday 3 August, you'll be able to search the register without contacting our Land Charges team, by using our mapping system instead.

You'll still be able to ask us to search the register for you by emailing and requesting an enhanced personal search but you'll need to pay £15.
