Land and property searches


COVID-19 update - Property Searches

As our teams work remotely, outlined below is the continunity plan for property searches.

Official Searches

If you normally send search applications through the post, please could you email them instead. 

You can pay the search fee either by our preferred option of BACS/Faster Payment or by debit/credit card.

Our preferred contact method is by email to land.charges@flintshire.gov.uk

Expedited search requests will not be accepted during this time.  

As a precaution, expect that there could be slight delays with the despatch of your responses.  

Prices and our search request form can be found below.

Personal Searches/EIR Requests for CON29 Information

All requests to be forwarded to planningadmin@flintshire.gov.uk.

Data Integrity

Because we will not have full access to all records required for searches, if we feel that we cannot complete any type of search, we will get in touch with you.

Many thanks for your understanding at this time. We will keep you advised of any changes as we continually review the situation.

If you are buying a property within the Flintshire area, as part of the conveyancing process, an application is usually made to the Local Land Charges office to provide financial and other information relating to charges, notices and local authority matters which affect the building(s) or plot of land.

Land and property searches can be carried out by Local Authorities, private search firms and members of the public.
