Liverpool Street

HM Land Registry has rolled out its digital migration to include Liverpool.

From today anyone requiring Local Land Charges searches in the local authority area of Liverpool City Council will need to get them from HM Land Registry rather than going directly to the council.

Liverpool now joins Warwick District Council as the second local authority to migrate its Local Land Charges data to the new national register following the launch of the service on 11 July 2018.

HM Land Registry is currently working with several local authorities across England to migrate their Local Land Charges data to a central, digital register, which will hopefully help speed up the moving process. Once migrated, search results will be provided instantly to anyone using the Search for Local Land Charges service.

HM Land Registry’s business customers can use their existing portal and Business Gateway channels or their usual search providers.

However, customers will still be required to submit CON29 enquiries to the local authority.

You can find out how the new system works by clicking on the image below and watching a very short video.
