Local land charges register
The local land charges section maintains the land charges register for the Wyre area. A local land charge is a binding obligation on property or land, which are binding on successive owners.
A statutory requirement is placed on all local authorities within England and Wales, to generate, maintain and regularly update a local land charges register and to provide local searches. The register is updated daily in order to provide answers to search requests, using information provided by Wyre Council and the county council.
Any charges registered on a local land charges register would not normally be disclosed in the title deeds or by an inspection of the property/land itself. Charges maybe of a financial or non-financial nature.
