To avoid disappointment we recommend that customers submit Land Search requests well in advance of the above dates.

Local Land Charges Search
The Local Land Charges Office provides information to people buying or carrying out transactions on a piece of land or property in the Basildon Borough.
The Land Charges office investigates whether there are any legal restrictions, which may affect the property or land in question and will bring together all the information in the form of a Local Authority search, which collects information from various departments throughout the Council, including Planning, Building Control, Environmental Health and Essex County Council Highways.
Details that are provided include previous planning history and notices or restrictions imposed on the land and property, nearby highway proposals and whether there are any planning constraints (i.e. is the property in a Conservation Area), which might affect any future development.
Land Charges Search Fees
You can now pay all your local land charges search fees online , 24 hours a day.
PLEASE NOTE: Please be advised that VAT (20%) will be added to our search fees from the 6th January 2017.
