Arrangements for personal searches

Personal Searches can be carried out 5 mornings a week (Monday to Friday) with a maximum of 5 searches per appointment slot. The appointment times are normally 10am, 10.30am, 11am and 11.30am. These may be altered very occasionally due to staff cover.

When booking a Personal Search, please provide the property address, give at least 24 hours notice and be able to supply a plan if requested to do so.

A Personal Search appointment can be made either in person, by telephone on 01282 425011 extension 3262 – or by emailing

As we are currently in the process of data capture, any register details held electronically for the property being searched will be pre-printed by us and placed in the manual register. 

Any comments, suggestions and complaints about the service should be made in writing to:

Local Land Charges Manager, Town Hall, Manchester Road, Burnley BB11 9SA.
