HOW OFFICIAL SEARCHES AND PERSONAL SEARCHES ARE PROCESSED

PERSONAL SEARCHES

Since 23rd March 2020 all personal searches  are emailed back. This is however a temporary change in the way personal searches are carried out.

Any personal search appointments booked in – the results will emailed to you. We will still require an email request for an appointment date. The difference will be that you will receive the personal search result before or by the end of the day for the date you give for the appointment.

Please bear with us during this period.  Emails may take a little longer to respond too.

OFFICIAL SEARCHES

We will require all official search requests to be sent to us via the following ways: 

NLISTM

Or as attachments by email to land.charges@stalbans.gov.uk
Payment for the official search is to be paid online via card payment. Please go to Pay Online to access the system. We will require a copy of the receipts of payment to be emailed to us along with the search attachments.

DO NOT POST ANY SEARCHES TO THE COUNCIL OFFICES. WE WILL NOT RECEIVE THEM.

Please call if you have any queries. 01727 819513 or 01727 819511
