Local Land Charges

A Local Land Charge is a restriction or prohibition that is binding on successive owners of a property.

The council’s Local Land Charge section carries out all official searches of the Local Land Charges Register for land and property in Cardiff.  

We maintain the Land Charges Register and holds the register of Common Land and Village Greens. 

Personal Searches 

A list of all properties you wish to perform searches on must be sent to us via email or fax, along with plans for each property (with the property clearly hatched).  

Fax: 029 2082 7152

  • ​The list must be sent to us the day before you wish to come in, no later than 12:00pm. 
  • Any search sent in to us later than 12:00pm cannot be put on for the following day. 
  • Searches must not be sent in any more than a day in advance. 
  • We do not operate an appointment system. Providing your search is sent in before 12:00pm you can come in any time the following day during our open hours. 
  • We only accept one list per company per day which must contain no more than 10 properties. 
  • To ensure that we have received your list, you can ring our office on: 029 2087 2510. 

Plots that have been street referenced must come to us with a full address not a plot number and development name.
