City of Lincoln Council digitises key property service

HM Land Registry’s national Local Land Charges (LLC) Register continues to grow with the City of Lincoln Council becoming the latest local authority to join the service.

HM Land Registry is working in partnership with local authorities to migrate their local land charges data to a central, digital register as part of a phased approach.

Local land charges searches are normally required in the property buying process, with most being restrictions or prohibitions on the use of the property, such as planning permissions or listed building status.

Commenting, Assistant Director of Planning at City of Lincoln Council, Kieron Manning said:

“We have today migrated our local land charges service to the national register. This will make buying a property in Lincoln quicker and simpler for all. The register allows users to search information online instantly, providing the user with a consistent service across the country.

Programme Director for HM Land Registry’s Local Land Charges Programme, Mark Kelso added:

“We continue to work with local authorities across England and Wales to ensure property buyers can obtain the information they need quickly, making the conveyancing process simpler and faster for everyone.

“I am really pleased that because of this collaboration, people buying property in the City of Lincoln will now have access to instant LLC search results.”

Once migrated, anyone will be able to get instant online search results using the search for local land charges service.

The LLC search will reveal whether a property is subject to a charge, which then informs a buyer’s decision to buy a property or parcel of land.

Business customers can use their existing portal and Business Gateway channels or their usual search providers to access local land charges data for those local authorities which have migrated.

Customers will need to continue to submit CON29 enquiries to the local authority.

End-of-life is often overlooked yet is equally as important to a digital strategy, but what happens to end-of-life technology? What is the impact on the environment, net zero targets? What is the financial impact, is value for money for the taxpayer simply discarded and destroyed along with the technology?
