Information for conveyancers and estate agents

When your client is buying, selling, leasing, valuing or re-mortgaging their land or property, an official local authority search will contain the information required and give you the full facts about the land or property, which you can rely on. The official search is compiled by the Council who are the official custodians of official local information.

The Local Land Charges team can provide:

  • consistently fast and easy access to reliable accurate information which is highly marketable
  • turnaround time from one to five working days
  • competitive pricing at just £150
  • options to submit and pay for your official searches electronically through the website
  • the option to receive the results of your official searches electronically
  • official search results containing the most up-to-date and comprehensive information that all mortgage lenders accept

How to order official searches
