A personal search can be carried out by the home-mover themselves, or by a private personal search agent or company. A personal search is only of the Land Charges Register. Once the register has been inspected the personal search has been concluded. A personal searcher is able to inspect certain public registers, this is carried out by personal searchers, not Local Land Charges staff. The information obtained by a personal search agent from public registers is not guaranteed by the Local Authority. The search result is not certified by a Local Authority and any compensation claim has to be made through the Personal Search Company who completed the search.
A Personal Search of the Local Land Charges register and certain CON29R information is available to view (free access) on the computer terminals in the One-Stop Shop, Lewis House, Manvers Street, Bath.
If you have not previously used the computer terminals to view the records please contact Local Land Charges to arrange a training session - please provide at least a week's notice.
Opening times of the Manvers Street One Stop Shop are Monday & Tuesday & Thursday; 8.30am – 5pm; Wednesday 9.30am – 5pm; Friday 8.30am – 4.30pm.
