Local land charge

A local land charge is a restriction on a piece of land or property that can limit its use or bind the owner to a payment of a sum of money. Charges can include:

  • planning decisions
  • road agreements
  • tree preservation orders
  • conservation areas and listed buildings notices
  • environmental health notices
  • charges or objections made against previous owners

A local land charges search will highlight these charges and help you to make an informed choice about buying the parcel of land or property.
