Liverpool City Council has become the second local authority to transfer its local land charges data to HM Land Registry’s recently launched national register.

It joins Warwick District Council in making searches for data on property and land within its borders available through the central register rather than its own portal.

This follows the launch of the Local Land Charges Register in July. HM Land Registry is working in partnership with several local authorities in England this year to migrate their data to the register.

It added that its business customers can use their existing portal and Business Gateway channels or their usual search providers.

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

The project follows the passing of the Infrastructure Act 2015, which is consolidating the 20 million LLC records in council registers into a single source, and the migration process is scheduled to continue until 2023.
