Local Land Charges Register

Requests for information from the Local Land Charges Register can be made under the Land Charges Rules. The Land Charges Rules permit inspection of the register for free at our offices. You will need to make an appointment with at least 48 hours notice. If you do not wish to inspect for free the information can be sent to you for a fee of £10. Please email your request including a plan clearly identifying the property/land for either way to landcharges@northdevon.gov.uk. When you visit our Authority you will need to attend the Reception where you will be handed a folder. The folder will contain a map of the area your property/land is within and a sheet outlining how to do the search. You will need to identify any charges on the property/land and then use the online register to obtain the details of the charge. The online register is below:
