Land Registry Changes

The Land Registry have made a move to widen their powers which could have a very positive impact on the housing market. Following a successful prototype, Land Registry are publicly consulting on providing Local Land Charge searches in addition to keeping and maintaining the Land Register, where more than 23 million titles – the evidence of ownership in England and Wales – are documented.

They are looking to make the buying process easier and more efficient by digitising government services and making public data more accessible which hopefully will benefit the wider economy.

Holters Director Karl Salter explained "Local Land Charge searches are provided by 348 separate local authorities and turn around times can vary anywhere between 1 and 40 days. By making this information easier to obtain they will speed up the buying process which will be a great benefit to the housing market. Finding a buyer is only half the battle when selling a property, getting the sale to completion is often the hard part. Buyers have a long time to get cold feet and change their mind so anything that makes the sales process more efficient has to be a positive move."
