Personal searches

The following options are available to you when requesting your personal search.

Option 1
If you wish to book a personal search and receive your response electronically, you need to register first and then book using the link below.

Please follow the online step by step process to book and pay for your personal search and component data if required.

We aim to respond to your request within our advertised timescales by returning the results direct from the land charges direct database. This will ensure you receive your completed personal search without delay. This will incur a nominal fee of £0.60p in addition to any component data fees.

Please note that personal search results will now only be returned electronically for requests received via the online land charges direct service.

Option 2
Alternatively, you may book your personal searches by telephone or e-mail. However, it will be necessary for you to visit the Town Hall to collect your personal search and make your due payment (if applicable) in person as we will no longer e-mail the results to you.

Please note; our response timescales for this option is slightly extended to 15 working days.
