IMPORTANT NOTICE: General Election

Did you know, many Local Authorities operate their Land Charges as part of a wider Registered Department, covering both the Land Charges Register and the Electoral Role?

With the general election coming up, we’d like to take this opportunity to make you aware that turnaround times could be affected due to redeployment of staff, or temporary closure of departments, as employees are moved onto electoral duties.

We will of course keep you aware of any changes to your orders as we are made aware of them. We thank you for your understanding and patience whilst we work through these coming weeks.
