Arcus Global are delighted to announce the successful migration of North Lincolnshire Council to HM Land Registry’s national, digital Local Land Charges (LLC) Register. This move marks a significant milestone in streamlining and enhancing the efficiency of local land charge services.

North Lincolnshire Council, an existing user of the Arcus Global Land Charge solution, has been instrumental in capturing high-quality, accurate data. This meticulous approach has significantly reduced the migration time of their LLC service to the national register. The use of Arcus Global’s real-time REST API has ensured that clean, error-free data is passed to HMLR, minimising the need for future amendments.

The innovative connector technology employed by Arcus Global automatically checks for duplicates and mismatches between datasets, validating the data seamlessly. This automation, integrated with the council’s broader solutions, allows for the creation of register entries effortlessly, eliminating the need for manual data rekeying or unreliable data extracts and loads.

North Lincolnshire Council in numbers:

  • Land charge registration entries: 65,500
  • LLC1 searches conducted monthly: 50
  • Registers updated daily: 8
  • Average house price: £185,000

The transition to the central register not only enhances the accuracy and efficiency of the council’s land charge services but also sets a benchmark for other local authorities. This collaboration between HMLR and Arcus Global underscores a commitment to leveraging technology for better public service delivery.
