About local land charges

Undertaking a personal search

A personal search permits a personal inspection of the local land charges register, by appointment. Any person or agent will be given access to personally view the local land charges register. In addition, any personal search agent or a member of the public is also entitled to request to inspect public registers held at our offices. The Local Land Charges Officer is unable to respond to requests for verbal information during a personal search therefore a basic knowledge of local land charges is desirable. 

The accuracy of a personal search depends on the ability and diligence of the searcher. It is not guaranteed by the local authority. 

Please note that a personal search does not provide the information contained within CON29R search but is likely to include a version of the Local Land Charges Register.
