"The councils policy on Property Searches has always been to ensure that we provide an efficient and responsive service for Property Searches falling under auspices of The Local Authorities (England) (Charges for Property Searches) Regulations 2008. The policy does not cover requests made under the Environmental Information Regulations 2004, as these are not dealt with by the Land Charges section and a separate policy applies to these requests.
To ensure the Council encourages regeneration and growth within Eastbourne it is important that the council can service requests for Property Searches as efficiently and as responsively as possible. To this end the Land Charges section are charged with concentrating their resources on maintaining the data held, responding to official searches submitted to the Council. We also try to return responses electronically in order to ensure as fast as possible turnaround.
More information on requests under the Environmental Information Regulations and Freedom of information can be found on the Data Protection and Freedom of Information page.
We accept searches by Email, DX, Royal Mail, By Hand, Nlis or TM.
Land Charges services are now provided by the Elections and Land Charges Team. You are in: www.eastbourne.gov.uk/landcharges
