We can now offer free access to our computer systems. To access the terminal just visit Brighton Town Hall reception and say you’re here to inspect the Land Charges Register, it’s located in the Electoral Services reception which is the doorway to the left of the usual Land Charges entrance on the second floor. You don’t need to book an appointment just turn up during usual office hours between 9am-5pm. We have created a step by step guide for looking up data which is next to the terminal, because this is a free service we will not be providing any training on how to use it past this guide. The only direct support we will provide would be for technical faults with the system, details of this are also located at the terminal.
We are still providing a Commercial Search Service at a fee of £14.50 if you’d prefer us to do the hard work for you.
Con29R Questions – where to find the information
The following list shows where you can access data to allow you to answer Con29 questions alternatively, for a small fee the Local Land Charges Team can undertake the work for you. Please use the Con29 Request Form on our web page.
