Property Certificates Fees
The Property Certificate service is offered by Council so that solicitors and others involved in property transactions can ensure that, so far as relates to Council, no notices, charges or other proceedings are outstanding against the property.
A Property Certificate will also confirm the correct postal address. The process involves carrying out a search of Council records in a manner that has been agreed with the Law Society. When we receive your application, we will carry out a search of our records relevant to the property.
The fees for property searches are as follows:
- Standard 10 year search: £70
- Follow up on your 10 year search: £30
- From 1973 to current day search: £95
These fees have been agreed with various stakeholders and are clearly denoted on the application form.
