With the election period over it is now business as usual for Land Registry’s Local Land Charges (LLC) team. So what can we expect to see over the next few months?

The legislation enabling us to provide our proposed digital LLC service was given Royal Assent in February.

As actual implementation requires a range of secondary legislation and rules to support these changes, a 12-week public consultation will start in the autumn.

Local authorities will continue to receive visits from our dedicated Engagement Team to help us understand their data sets and how they manage their processes.

This information will then inform how we create a single, digital LLC service that will improve access, standardise fees and improve turnaround times for property professionals and citizens.

We will also be exhibiting at the Local Government Association Annual Conference in Harrogate from 30 June to 2 July. Billed as one of the biggest political events of the year and attracting more than 1,200 delegates, the conference is a great opportunity for us to learn from key experts.

Further details about the public consultation and other LLC developments will feature in Landnet.
