Make an appointment by telephone with the Local Land Charges section - (01444) 477444.
This must be completed a full working day prior to the requested appointment time. So for example, to book a search for a Wednesday, you must contact us before close of business on Monday.
Each appointment period is for 30 minutes. No restriction is placed on the number of searches undertaken in that period. However, overbooking and not being able to complete your searches with this period is at your own risk. The duration of appointment periods will be strictly administered.
The appointment time you book is to inspect the Local Land Charges Registers. Inspection of the Planning history relating to your search can be carried out either before or after this appointment time.
From experience we suggest that this takes place prior to the inspection of the Local Land Charges register as it may not be possible to gain access to the registers again should queries arise after the planning register has been inspected.
A guide to accessing and using the Local Land Charges Registers is available to download below:
We respectfully remind personal searchers that it is their responsibility to interpret the Local Land Charges registrations and enquiries in this respect should not be addressed to staff in the Local Land Charges section.
