Written by Allen Walkey on - Breaking News -

HM Land Registry today launches its new digital Local Land Charges Register with Warwick District Council’s data the first to be available.

HM Land Registry takes another step forward in the Government’s ambition to make the home-buying process simpler, faster and cheaper.

Chief Executive and Chief Land Registrar Graham Farrant said:

“Buying a house is the biggest financial investment of people’s lives. By centralising and digitising the local land charges information of local authorities in England we are helping to improve conveyancing. Search results from the new register will be instantly available in a standard, easy-to-read format. This is another significant step forward in the Government’s ambition to make the home-buying process simpler, faster and cheaper.

“Warwick District Council is leading the way by being the first local authority to migrate their local land charges data to our new register. I look forward to more local authorities joining the central register during the year.”

Warwick District Council’s Chief Executive Chris Elliott commented:

“As a forward-looking council aiming to provide the best possible service to all of our customers, we very much welcome any measures which will speed up the process of buying a home. Opening up our data to HM Land Registry will be a huge benefit not only to those wishing to purchase a home or land in our district, but also to our busy planning team.”
