Find out about searches on a property
If you don't want to pay for an official search, there are other ways to access the Local Land Charges Register. You can either look through it yourself or ask us to do an informal check.
Assisted personal searches
We can check the Land Charges register informally for you. Use our online support form or call us on 01483 505050 to request this kind of search. Make sure to include:
- the details of your property
- a site plan showing the boundary of the land
We'll give you information from the Land Charges register (£32) and information which is usually on a CON29 form (£7.20 per question).
If you wish to carry out a personal search on a property, email the address of the property and a plan to email@example.com. The Local Land Charges register for the property will then be emailed to you. Please allow three working days for us to respond.

Environmental Information Regulations
The law states you can access any environmental information we hold for free. This includes the Land Charges register and some of the registers we use to answer CON29 questions. To search this information, complete our online support form or call us on 01483 505050. You'll need to book an appointment to view the register electronically at our office. Appointments can be made between 9am and 4pm, Monday to Friday.
Not all environmental information is dealt with by the Customer and Case Services Team. To answer CON29 questions, make a formal request to our Information Rights Officer instead.
