In your search we only provide information relating to your property, based on the address detailed and the area outlined in red on the plan submitted. You may however, ask additional questions for an additional cost. This would be the time and place to enquire about any other developments that may be planned for the surrounding area.

Here is an example of the sort of information you can expect to receive in your local authority search.

  • Planning history concerning the property itself dating back to 1 April 1974, as well as building regulations for the previous 15 years
  • Conservation areas
  • Designation of the area under the Local Plan guide
  • Tree Preservation Orders
  • Listed Building Status
  • Environmentally Sensitive Areas
  • Financial charges imposed by us
  • Financial charges imposed by outside bodies - for example, county councils
  • Improvement/renovation grants
  • Compulsory Purchase Orders
  • Conveyances (Council House Sales)
  • Road adoptions
  • Other legal documents

Queries about any of the agreements revealed in the local authority search should be directed in the first instance to the local land charges section. Copies of all the agreements can be obtained, though you will incur an extra fee.  Where possible it is advisable to send in a cheque with your query to avoid delay.
