Local land charges: Personal search

Important update

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on 4 January 2021, government guidance restricts non-essential travel or contact with others.

We understand that personal search companies are also impacted by this and want to ensure minimal disruption to their business. We have now made contingency arrangements.

Any company requiring a personal search may submit up to seven searches, per week, per company via email.

We require a map with the outline of the area to be searched highlighted in red accompanying each search.

We will provide a copy of the local land charges register and replies to the Con29R only.

How to submit your request

Please submit your request to landcharges@towerhamlets.gov.uk and clearly state in the subject line of the email ‘PERSONAL SEARCH’ followed by the address of the site. Replies will be sent to the original email address in pdf format.

These are contingency arrangements and will not remain in place due to capacity issues any longer than they need to be. We will continue to review them in line with government guidance.

We hope this will help you continue providing services.
