The Local Land Charges Department undertakes local searches on a property or land which you may be thinking of buying as well as on surrounding areas. These are usually requested by a solicitor who can explain the results to you.
Information is provided about matters which may affect the property for example planning applications, enforcement notices, building regulations, whether the property is in a conservation area or whether there are any major developments planned.
