“We are pleased to have migrated our local land charges data onto HM Land Registry’s central, digital register. In doing so, we are providing confidence in the accuracy of the data and helping to improve the efficiency of buying and selling property in Stratford-on-Avon.”

Allison Bradbury, Head of Local Land Charges Implementation at HM Land Registry, said:

“We have worked together closely with Stratford-on-Avon District Council to migrate their complex dataset to our national, digital Local Land Charges Register. I am delighted that people buying property in Stratford will now have access to instant local land charges search results, making it quicker and simpler to buy and sell property in the area.”
