Local land searches
Coronavirus (COVID- 19) Update
The majority of searches are being returned in 29 - 50 working days.
Unfortunately, turnaround times have increased due to an influx of work of both full and personal searches that the team are currently dealing with along with limited access to manual records for the team. Please be assured that the team are working hard and will endeavour to reduce the turnaround times at the earliest opportunity.
You can submit directly by post including cheque payable to Wiltshire Council:

A personal search is an inspection of the Local Land Charges register, which can be carried out by anyone.
Personal searches can be undertaken at County Hall within the following opening times subject to booking.
- Monday to Friday 1pm to 5pm
All requests to view the Local Land Charges register should be emailed with a legible plan provided.
The Local Land Charges electronic register information will be emailed to you in line with the current turnaround times.
It's the responsibility of the company/person to make sure the correct address and appropriate plan showing the site to be searched against edged in red is emailed to Local Land Charges. If no plan is received or any clarification is required this may lead to a delay in making records available for viewing.
The output report must not be interpreted in any way to consumers, estate agents or solicitors as implying that a full or part Local Authority Search has been carried out. The report is purely an extract of our data files and is provided for interpretation by the company/person who requested it.
