Local Land Charges Register and Searches

planning

The Council is required by law to keep a Land Charges Register. The Register records relevant information on every property within Stockton Borough. It includes information about highways, planning conditions, conservation areas, tree preservation orders, enforcement notices, improvement grants and financial charges relating to the property which is the subject of the search.

Searches of the Land Charges Register are carried out when a property or land is sold. The purpose of a search is to disclose to the interested parties any relevant entries on the Register that may affect the property to be purchased.

Turn around times for Local Land Charges are:

  • Assisted Searches - seven working days
  • Full Searches - five working days
