Find out more about highway and other local authority searches. 

  • Highway adoption status search 

    Our highways status search tool shows whether or not a road is maintained by the County Council as Highways Authority. It’s not a comprehensive list of all roads in Leicestershire but most are included.

  • Highway record enquiry 

    You can request a highways search for a specific property or piece of land.

  • Highway extinguishments 

    An ‘Extinguishment’ is a procedure which lets a landowner legally acquire an area of public highway, which can then be included within their property boundary as private land

  • Local authority searches (Local land charges & Con29) 

    The local authority search looks at all the information held by the Local Authority about a specific property and is usually done by a conveyancing solicitor on your behalf.
