Description: A Local Land Charge (LLC) is a restriction or prohibition on land which binds successive owners and occupiers. The LLC Programme will deliver a single LLC Register Service for England (the inclusion of the LLC Registers in Wales will be subject to a further business case), implementing the powers granted to HM Land Registry under the Infrastructure Act 2015. The scope of the Programme is to take the 326 English Local Authorities registers and replace them with a single digital register, resulting in Land Registry becoming the sole registering authority and official search provider for LLC.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The service is now live and HMLR is working with a range of local authorities to migrate thier data. This has been slower than planned due to a number of factors: readiness and resource availability within local authorities, the complexity of creating consistent geospatial data from the current data sets and the time taken to procure and on-board the digitisation and transformation supplier. The key aim for Phase 1 is to inform our learning about the new service, its impact on customers and market - and the costs and time taken to migrate the service to the national digital Register. This learning is being applied in real time to the inflight migrations, including investing in AI to inform understanding of the data issues and speed up the transformation process.
Start date: 2014-03-01
End date: 2023-11-17
Schedule text: During 2018, the secondary legislation to enable the service to go live was passed through Parliament and the digital Register was completed, allowing the service to go live on 11 July 2018. Since then, the service has migrated from 5 local authorities, against the planned up to 26. Approval has been received from Ministers in BEIS and HMT to extend Phase 1 until March 2020, in order to allow for additional local authorities to be migrated to the new national digitial Register - and increase our learning about the product, costs and timelines for migrating the service.
