How to perform a personal search online

Click on  Online Search to search for land charges on land and premises in our district.

Before you proceed you may want to consider reading through these brief operating instructions. This will explain the simplest ways to navigate through the programme to extract the information required.

Finding your property: The best option is to enter the full address in "find address" eg 111 Smith Street, if our system is unable to find the address you require, try entering postcodes, streets or possibly an adjoining property, click on the result to zoom to.

 The property in question will always be identified by a red, diamond shaped marker.

 Load the relevant Land Charge themes, these can be found on the right, please manually click one at a time, if anything is found the coloured layer will appear, this can then be interrogated for the information you require by clicking anywhere within the area accordingly.

The map below shows an address where there is a building over a sewer agreement, coloured orange, this has been interrogated and shows the pop up box containing the relevant information.

It is possible to load several layers at a time, then, by clicking within the search site, it will still load all the information required.

For best results please only select a few layers at once, as the more you have open the slower the system will run.

Any Planning history can be checked using our existing system click on the link to view our planning search.

 

Whilst every effort has been made to ensure the information on our Land Search facility is correct, you are advised to contact the land charges department for definitive information if you have any queries.  The boundaries of our base maps are constantly changing and we cannot guarantee that our land charges will always follow the exact boundaries intended.
