This month, North Kesteven District Council and Haringey Council have joined the Local Land Charges (LLC) Register.

Anyone requiring LLC searches in the local authority areas of North Kesteven District Council and Haringey Council will now get them from HM Land Registry rather than going directly to the council.

HM Land Registry has been working in partnership with local authorities across England and Wales to migrate local land charges data to a central, digital register.

Once migrated, users will be able to get instant online search results via, using the ‘Search for Local Land Charges’ service.

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.

Allison Bradbury, head of local land charges implementation at HM Land Registry, said: “These latest migrations demonstrate how our LLC programme is gathering pace.

“I am delighted that people buying property in North Kesteven and Haringey will now have access to instant LLC search results.

“It is our ambition to migrate all local authorities in England and Wales to our LLC Register by 2025.”
