Liverpool City Council has become the second local authority to migrate its local land charges data to a new national register.

Local authorities in England, with the exception of county councils, are required to hold a local land charges register that records obligations affecting properties within their areas.

Under the Infrastructure Act 2015, these registers will be transferred to HM Land Registry in a phased approach which began last July.

Warwick District Council was the first authority to move its local land charges data to the central, digital register.

Once migrated, anyone will be able to get instant online search results via www.gov.uk using the service, although customers will need to continue to submit CON29?enquiries?to their local authority.
