Welwyn Hatfield Council joins Land Registry’s Local Land Register

HM Land Registry’s digital Local Land Charges Register continues to grow, enabling the digital transformation of homebuying with Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council now joining Land Registry’s Local Land Charges Register.

Borough council is the latest local authority to transfer its local land charges data to HM Land Registry’s digital register.

Anyone requiring local land charges (LLC) searches in the local authority area of Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council will need to get them from HM Land Registry rather than going directly to the council.

Councillor Nick Pace, Executive Member for Governance and Public Health at Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council, said:

“We’re really pleased to have partnered with HM Land Registry to migrate our LLC data onto its central, digital register. It will help make the property buying and selling process quicker and easier, greatly benefiting residents and businesses in Welwyn Hatfield.”

Mark Kelso, Programme Director for HM Land Registry’s Local Land Charges Programme, said:

“Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council is the latest local authority to offer its customers access to HM Land Registry’s LLC Register. I am delighted that people buying property in Welwyn Hatfield will now have access to instant local land charges search results, making it quicker and simpler to buy and sell property in the area.”
