Local land charges - personal search
A personal search is a search of the Local Land Charges Register usually carried out by a personal search company on behalf of a solicitor but can be undertaken by anyone, for which there is no charge.
The searcher does not receive anything in writing and the information is presented in the form of a report, the onus is on the searcher to record anything of relevance. If the personal searcher (rather than the Local Authority) makes an error, then the solicitor who commissioned the personal search, or their client, would have no claim under Section 10 of the Local Land Charges Act 1975, which relates to compensation for loss.
Access to the local land charges register is via a p.c. terminal at the One Stop Shop, The Corby Cube, George Street, Corby for which an appointment is required.
PERSONAL SEARCHES FOR THE FOLLOWING AREAS CAN BE REQUESTED FROM THE CORBY OFFICE
Corby, Cottingham, East Carlton, Great Oakley, Gretton, Middleton, Rockingham, Stanion and Weldon
An appointment only system is operated by the Council. The appointment can be made by telephoning the Local Land Charges section on 01536 464026.
In order to arrange your appointment we will require:
- the name of the company carrying out the search
- the date and time of visit
- address and plan of the property/land to be searched against
