This page gives information for private search companies carrying out inspections of the register of local land charges under environmental information regulations (EIR).
As of Monday 2 March 2015 the planning information office will be temporarily re-located to Lewisham Town Hall, Civic Suite, Room 8 (opposite Laurence House). Opening times will remain as stated below.
An EIR search allows the personal inspection of the Local Land Charges Register at our office in Laurence House, Catford. Other public registers may also be inspected free of charge which include the Planning Register and the Highways Register.
An inspection must be pre-arranged one week before it is required. Please book your inspection appointment by contacting us at on 020 8314 6262 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Monday to Friday 9am–1pm.
If agents require further information in order to compile a full search, which includes the questions found on the CON29R, and other than that found in the Public Registers, some of this information can be accessed free of charge via the Lewisham website as follows:

Frequently asked questions
What is the difference between a full search and a search in the Register under environmental information regulations?
A full search consists of results from a search in the local land charges register as well as answers to Part 1 of the CON29 form. Part 2 enquiries and a solicitor's own enquiries can be answered for an additional fee. The search is officially signed by the Council.
A search under EIR allows a third party to search the Local Land Charges Register and make notes from it. There are other options available to agents and the fees for these can be found under ‘Scale of Fees’ in the Local Land Charges - full search section.
Where can I get copies of planning permissions?
The Planning Information Office, see details in contact us. Copies are subject to a fee payable by cash or cheque.
