The forms must be submitted in duplicate along
with two location plans highlighting the property/land to be
searched and the appropriate fee. It is also possible to use the
fully electronic system for submission via the National Land Information Service
(NLIS). Please note both the licensed channel provider and the hub
will charge additional fees.
Alternatively why not email searches

Updated search facility
This service is free for a period of three
months from the date of certificate.
When an updated request is submitted, the

the date of the official certificate. The council will then carry
out a fresh search for you and provide you with all relevant
charges and replies to both the LLC1 and Con29.
