Local land searches

Unfortunately turnaround times have increased due to technical difficulties with some IT systems, meaning although searches could be partially worked on, some of the work could not be completed. Regrettably this has led to an increase in turnaround times across all forms of search requests. As searches are partially complete it is not possible to give timescales for the return of searches.

Please be assured that the team are working hard and will endeavour to reduce the turnaround times at the earliest opportunity.

We apologise for these delays and appreciate your patience and understanding whilst the team work to reduce the turnarounds.
