Information for property buyers

A local land search is the established way to obtain a range of property information held by the local authority, such as:

  • planning decisions
  • highway adoption and road schemes
  • conservation and tree preservation orders
  • official notices
  • building regulation matters.

Prospective buyers need to know this kind of information before a purchase as it may restrict their plans for the property or affect its price or saleability when they come to sell, maybe many years later. This includes any legal restrictions or development proposals affecting a particular property.
