Remember, before applying for a Local Search you will need to provide a plan showing the area to be searched outlined in red before we can process your request. If more than one property is included such as additional barn conversions, holiday lets, separate annexes or parcels of land, there will be extra fees to pay.
Email your request (we will accept requests without the official forms), the plan and your contact details to SHfirstname.lastname@example.org
Let us know in your email how you are going to pay: by card or by BACS. We no longer accept cheque payments.
National Land Information Services (NLIS) is a government initiative which carries the sole mandate of providing electronic official land and property information held by all Local Authorities in England and Wales, as well as other official sources of data, including HMLR, the Coal Authority and water companies.
The NLIS Hub acts as a gateway for conveyancers to access land and property information through one of the NLIS Licensed Channels listed below:
The NLIS Hub is regulated by Land Data.
For further information on how to order NLIS searches please visit the NLIS website.

DX or post: The council would prefer to receive searches electronically to reduce delays for you and your client. However it is acknowledged that sometimes there is no option but to submit in a paper form. Please note that from April 2018 the council will not accept cheques with Posted or DX searches so payment will have to be made by a different method such as card or BACS (see below).
