  • Highway record enquiry 

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

    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)
