What is the cost of a search?

See our table showing search fees.

Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has changed VAT requirements. As a result, we will be adding VAT to Local Authority searches from 31 March 2017. 

Our search fees will be changing to meet the requirements of the Local Land Charges fee guidance on 1 April 2018.
