Find out about searches on a property

Apply for an official search

To arrange an official search, you'll need to provide:

  • the necessary forms (ask your solicitor for a copy to complete)
  • an up-to-date plan of the property which clearly shows the boundaries

Some Land Charge information is attached to the specific part of the land it applies to. Make sure you give us information about all the parts of the land you want us to check.

Email the forms and plan to customerservices@guildford.gov.uk and pay for them with our online form. You can also pay using your credit or debit card by calling us on 01483 505050.
