What are land charges? - Search fees and access

No Surprises!

When you buy a house, a search of the Council's records will ensure there are no hidden surprises, such as:

  • Repayment of monies owed to the Council.
  • Whether there are any trees on your land protected by law.
  • Future developments/road schemes.

From 1st April 2019, Personal Search companies can now undertake searches of the Land Charges Register within the Reception Area at the Council Offices, Queen’s Buildings, Potter Street, Worksop.

To begin with, appointments are not necessary, but if the machine is busy, customers may face a wait. If demand proves popular, then the authority may introduce a booking system for specific appointments. The machine is available between the hours of 9am – 4:15. Please ensure that you can identify the land against which you want to search.

In addition to the new service, the Building Control Register can be accessed on our Open Data site. Further or more detailed Building Control information can be obtained from the council, however we may take up to 15 days to respond, dependant on the complexity or nature of the request. To request this information, please email foirequests@bassetlaw.gov.uk.

A faster and more comprehensive response may be found by submitting an Official Search.
