As we are now a digital only service, we no longer accept cheques or paper forms. We accept search forms via email and payments made online or by third party search providers.
Other than solicitors details, for example: address and contact details, we don’t not hold any other personal information. Further information is irrelevant to us and is not required by our services.
The reason we record this information is in order to complete and return to the appropriate person searches submitted to the local land charges department. The information is stored on the land charges process system and held indefinitely, as required by our legal team.
