Land Data  has opened its 2021 Local Land Charges Awards for Excellence and is asking conveyancers to nominate and provide feedback on the local authority Local Land Charges team that has delivered a consistently high level of customer service throughout the coronavirus pandemic. Quality, reliability, and efficiency should be considered when deciding which local authority who to nominate.
Recent figures from the National Land Information Service  (NLIS) confirm that, despite the challenges of working remotely and the significant increase in the demand for conveyancing searches, 70% of local authorities are returning searches to customers well within the Government target of 10 days.
