Richmondshire District Council

Property searches

We aim to return about half of searches within five working days and all searches in an average of nine to ten days. 

Most are straightforward and can be returned quite quickly, but more complex sites will need a little longer. If your search is particularly urgent, let us know and we'll do our best to fast track it.

Request a search 

You can do this online via the National Land Information Service 

Both LLC1 and CON29 forms should be submitted at the same time if you need answers to both.

The correct address for the property must be provided, together with an up-to-date scale plan showing the extent and location of the land clearly edged in red, for all search requests. 

Our current fees are set out below. The fee level is different for properties in the Yorkshire Dales National Park (YDNP) because of the additional cost in supplying information.
