Local Land Charges Fees

Local Land Charges Fees 2021/22

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

Due to the impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made changes to our local land charges service. The best way to submit documents and applications is online or by email. You can still use the letterbox at Causeway House to submit documents, which we will collect regularly.

We no longer accept cheques for payment of searches.

You have to pay the correct fee for your search before we can start to work on it.

The fees on this page apply from 1 April 2021.
