Local Land Charges

We are experiencing delays with our external parties which means our turnaround times are currently over 5 working days.

We are currently working with HM Land Registry to migrate our local land charges service to their central digital register. When this process is complete, HM Land Registry will provide search results for local land charges searches in the Scarborough Borough area.

We will provide an exact date for when this service will go live, in due course. For more information visit GOV.UK

The Local Land Charges Service is responsible for maintaining the Local Land Charges Register and for dealing with applications for official searches of that Register. Further details and fees can be found below.

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has published guidance for the general public on how to buy a home and how to sell a home. This guidance has been developed following meetings with stakeholders including the Local Land Charges Institute.
