Search Turnaround Time and Search Fee information

Search Turnaround Time

The Council's current search turnaround time is approximately 15 working days from acceptance of a complete and valid application (i.e. correct and completed forms, full payment of correct search fee and provision of a suitable search plan).

Search turnaround times are not guaranteed and will fluctuate due to demands placed on the service and our resources. Regrettably, as a result, we are not able to confirm Search Result return dates.

We accept that search results may be required as a matter of urgency, however, we would be very grateful if chase up calls and emails could be avoided. Your patience is appreciated during this period. The Council will endeavour to clear the backlog of applications and reduce search turnaround times as quickly as possible.

We suggest that our search turnaround times are considered and taken into account when submitting searches and setting transaction deadlines/schedules. Applicants should ensure that applications are complete and valid in order to avoid increased delays, additional work and costs.

Torridge District Council does not offer a service to expedite search applications upon payment of additional fees.
