Local Land Charges Search

A Local Authority Search is usually requested by a solicitor on behalf of purchasers of land or property, and forms part of the conveyancing process. The standard questions give potential buyers details of any restrictions or legal obligations, which are enforceable against successive owners.

Since 21st April 2020 Carlisle City Council no longer provides a Local Land Charges service. Since then, the Local Land Charges Register migrated to HM Land Registry and you can access the new digital service through your portal account, Business Gateway and on GOV.UK.

Carlisle City Council  continues to provide replies to CON29 enquiries.
