Local land charges

Personal searches

You can find the information that would be requested in a CON29R search by undertaking a personal search of each subject area yourself.

This can involve:

  • searching online
  • sending requests to individual service areas
  • making appointments to view information at our offices

Personal search requests and appointments are free, although there is a charge of 10p per page for any requested copies of the information, and no target period for processing.

A personal search means you will do all the work yourself. We will not:

  • issue an official search certificate
  • give advice on how to conduct your personal search

For commercial premises you can either carry out a personal search yourself or you can request a local land charge search, for which fees and charges apply.

Email us if you would like an appointment for a personal search.

Answering specific questions

As an alternative to a personal search, you can ask us specific questions and we will send the results back to you electronically on a form. The fees for this service are calculated according to expected staff time and costs.
