The Local Authorities (England)(Charges for Property Searches) Regulations 2008

In accordance with The Local Authorities (England)(Charges for Property Searches) Regulations 2008 the Council has estimated its charges for providing access to property records, by taking into account the estimated cost of the Local Land Charge Service and search volumes as follows:-

1.    Estimates of search requests in 2011/2012:-

  • Official searches – 860

2.    These estimates are based on past and current search request numbers.
3.    For current search charges please see above.

N.B.  It should be noted that the above Regulations were introduced in December 2008.  The financial year 2011/2012 is therefore the third year that search requests will be subject to them.  Although we have been as accurate as we can with estimated numbers, actual numbers will be monitored and the above amended to reflect variations throughout the year.
