Liverpool is the latest city to have its Local Land Charges (LLC) register moved from the council to the Land Registry.
Anyone requiring LLC searches in the local authority area of Liverpool City Council will need to get them from the Land Registry rather than going directly to the council.
Liverpool is the second local authority to migrate its LLC data to the new national register following the launch of the service in July with Warwick District Council.
Commenting on the changes, Andrew Lloyd, managing director of conveyancing software provider Search Acumen, said: “The newly digitised data will provide solicitors with instant access to data needed to carry out due diligence for home buyers and sellers, which they could have previously waited weeks to receive.
“This will save buyers and sellers weeks of administrative angst and will also reduce the risk of transactions falling through.
“As Land Registry rolls out the digitised service across England and Wales, home buyers, sellers, estate agents and solicitors will be set to save millions of unnecessary days spent waiting for vital information to finalise property sales and purchases.
“We truly believe this revolution will transform the process of buying and selling property in the UK.”
