CON29 Highway search – Local Authority Search

A local authority search and a local land charge search are two different names for the same thing. They are a two-part search carried out when property or land is valued, purchased or leased.

A highway search is offered to personal search companies and private individuals.

Should you require highways information relating to a particular property or piece of land, we operate a fast and efficient personal search service delivered by a team of officers trained to interpret highways records and keep in constant contact with those responsible for instigating proposals to the highway network within Worcestershire.
