Local Land Charges

Land Charges

The Council has a statutory duty to maintain the register of Local Land Charges. The register is updated on a daily basis to ensure that the most accurate information is held.

We would like to update you about changes to local land charges and highway searches in Buckinghamshire with effect from 1 April 2020.

On 1 April 2020 the new Buckinghamshire Council will replace the current five councils - Buckinghamshire County Council, Chiltern District Council, South Bucks District Council, Aylesbury Vale District Council and Wycombe District Council. A new fee structure for searches will also come into effect from 1 April.

In order to facilitate these changes, the Local Land Charges team will not be able to accept searches between midday on 26 March and 1 April.  The Highways team will not accept searches between midday on 30 March and 1 April.  Any searches received during this time will be held until 1 April when they will be processed and subject to the new fee structure. 

Local Land Charges fees from 1 April 2020

Please note that from 1 April cheques should be made payable to Buckinghamshire Council.

Otherwise there will be no change to the way we provide local land charge and highways searches and you can continue to submit search requests in the same way.
