HM Land Registry
If you have any questions, please get in contact with us.
Every year over one million homebuyers rely on Local Land Charges (LLC) information to highlight restrictions or obligations affecting land or property. These could include planning consents, tree preservation orders or listed building status. Currently 300+ local authorities across England and Wales maintain this information.
HM Land Registry’s LLC programme is transferring 24 million records into the national digital LLC Register. By 2025, this register will have centralised the services into a single, standard format with a fixed fee, giving decision-makers instant online access to the information simply.
Since the service launched, more than 120,000 free searches and over 36,000 official guaranteed searches have been conducted. To accelerate the pace of service migrations further, HM Land Registry introduced a £26m transition payment scheme. This combined with burden payments covers all the local authority’s migration costs.
Completing the register will release £36 back into the UK economy for every £1 invested.
