Local land charges

Quick Search Request

Did you know that the price of a full electronic search requested direct with us is only £60 (plus a small additional charge if a card is used)? Also, the price of a full paper search is only £71 if you still wish to submit using the post. A full price list can be downloaded on this page. Our prices are at cost so cannot be beaten. If you are offered a cheaper product you should question how it can be cheaper? You can find out how to submit a search electronically on this page, all you need is a scanned plan and a credit/debit card.

Refunds for Personal Searches

The Government decided that the local land charges register should be publicly accessible for free. Unfortunately it took them a long time to do that and in the meantime local authorities were obliged to follow the law at the time. For that period of time the Government has said that local authorities should refund customers. If you had a search done by a private company please contact us and we will let you know if a claim has been received. You will then be able to contact your search provider and ask if you are due a refund.
