The National Land Information Service (NLIS) is celebrating its ten year anniversary. Since it was founded in February 2001, NLIS has delivered over 19 million official electronically sourced land and property searches through its channels to solicitors and licensed conveyancers. The NLIS Hub is connected to all local authorities in England and Wales, Land Registry, the Coal Authority and other sources of land and property information.
Jan Boothroyd, Chief Executive of Land Data, the company which manages and regulates NLIS commented:
“Over the past ten years, the role of NLIS has changed from innovator to leader, supporting conveyancers as they move from a manual to an electronic search environment. In the last six months we have seen growth in the NLIS market and as we enter a new decade, I’m proud to see NLIS is still leading the way.”
To kick start its 10th year, NLIS has revamped the website www.nlis.org.uk
, which launches today and a new MyNLIS level 2 website, aimed specifically for local authorities. Kate Crook NLIS Hub manager said:
“We are really pleased with the new MyNLIS website which has been created in direct response to feedback received from local authorities. It has greater functionality and new reporting features which local authorities will find enormously useful.”
Anniversary celebrations will take place at the annual Local Land Charges Conference in Bristol on 15th February and at the Land Data Local Land Charges Awards on 16th February.
