About local land charges

Whether you are buying or selling a property or business, are a conveyancer, private company or member of the public, our local land charges team are here to help.

We monitor our service with our annual customer satisfaction survey.

Land-related enquiries fall into three groups:

  • ownership of a piece of land or responsibility for a particular boundary, fence or wall
  • council-owned land – enquiries should be made to Property Services
  • privately owned land – these are dealt with by the Nottingham Land Registry.
