Statutory restrictions on property or land
This register lets buyers check if a property or land is affected by certain statutory restrictions which they could not easily discover.
These restrictions are created by or in favour of government departments or local councils and include:
- planning permission
- tree preservation orders
Searching the register for a property or land
A member of the Customer Information Centre team will assist you to view the Statutory Charges map to see if a charge has been registered against the property.
For more information, about the registry, go to a Customer Information Centre:For most searches, an address is enough to find the property. You might find it helpful to bring a map showing landmarks and road names.
If the land has a Statutory Charge registered, you can see the details on screen.
