RESIDENTIAL LOCAL AUTHORITY TURNAROUND TIMES

The table below shows the Local Authorities within the Severn Trent region. For those which Severn Trent Searches order directly from, we are able to provide these with no additional fees. In addition to these, we are able to offer searches for any other Local Authority within England and Wales.

* Turnaround time data is compiled by Severn Trent Searches based on the performance of local authorities over the previous four weeks. When an authority experiences abnormally long delays, they will usually inform us and we will advise customers accordingly. However, on occasion, local authorities do not communicate delays, and therefore these may not initially be reflected in the average turnaround time. As such we would recommend the data presented here be used for general guidance only.
