Local land charges search

The local land charges register holds a central source of information on properties within Tower Hamlets.

When you buy a property or piece of land, it’s important that you or your solicitor arrange for a search of the register. This will tell you about any restrictions (charges) which may affect the property or land.

The register includes information about:

  • planning permissions and agreements
  • environmental health notices
  • listed building charges
  • tree preservation orders
  • plans for new roads.

Types of searches

If you are not sure which type of search you need, please speak to your solicitor or contact us.
