ACCESS TO LAND CHARGES INFORMATION AT HEGINBOTTOM MILL FOR PRIVATE SEARCH AGENTS

Following a full risk assessment of the premises and the implementation of appropriate working arrangements we have re-opened our Land Charges Service at Heginbottom Mill to private search agents with immediate effect.
 
To ensure the continuing health and safety of all individuals involved in this process, the service will be operating on an APPOINTMENT ONLY basis, with appointments being offered Monday, Tuesday and Thursday each week.  

The Land Charges team will allocate slots each week to ensure fair access to all Private Search Agents.  If you are a private agent and require an appointment and haven’t been contacted, please email landcharges@tameside.gov.uk and we will arrange a suitable appointment time.
 


 

What's it all about?

When you are buying or selling a house, your solicitor will make a search of the Council's records to ensure there are no hidden surprises, such as motorways at the bottom of your garden or outstanding Notices requiring you to take action to remedy an earlier wrong doing.
 

Water Searches

United Utilities looks after the network of public sewers in Tameside. This is a change because until recently, we carried out the day to day work on sewers in our area. This work has now transferred to United Utilities.

If you are asking for a search to be undertaken or you are waiting to undertake a personal search, please contact United Utilities Map Services on Telephone Number 0870 7510101. Access www.unitedutilities.com Link to External Website for further information.
