Searches provide information on a particular property. They can only be ordered online by or on behalf of a person who has an interest in land within the area.
Who can apply?
For the purposes of ordering a Search, the Local Government Act 1999 (Section 187) states that a person has an interest in land if, and only if that person is:
- the owner of a registered estate or interest in the land; or
- an occupier of the land; or
- a person who has entered or declares to the Council that he or she proposes to enter into a contract to purchase the land; or
- a mortgagee or prospective mortgagee of the land.
