    How to view the Charges Register?

    Hi all,

    I've viewed some houses on an estate and all of them seem to have at least one charge on them, mostly relating back to the time when they were council owned properties. Most of these seem to have been forgotten/not enforced as they were created in the 1960s, but just want to be forewarned/forearmed!

    Is there a way without involving my costly solicitor (at the moment) of viewing these charges as it's not something I've seen mentioned on here before, or would I need to contact the council directly and speak to their legal dept. ?

    Thanks.

    Thanks LL, do you know if they make a charge for this? Not bothered if they do as well worth it to have the info required to make a safe decision.

    Around £4 per property officially but if you say pretty please they may just give the data you need.

    I've already paid the £3 for the title, which mentions covenants in the Charges Register, and that's what I'm trying to view. Not sure if this is the same as your suggestion?

    Ah OK  but maybe phone anyway and ask if they can clarify Charges issue.

    That's a strange website. It charges a lot of money for information like Title Check etc. that you can do for £3 on the official LR site.

    I will give LR a call and see what the options are.

    Have to admit I didn't check the other costs but at least you know what it's called and therefore what to ask for from land registry.
