Local Land Charges Awards 2018

The 2018 Local Land Charges Awards for Excellence are now open for entries and nominations!  These annual awards are the only national awards to celebrate the work and achievements of local authority Local Land Charges departments which carry out the land and property searches required for conveyancing transactions in England and Wales.

With a brand new award category for the Local Authority Searches Team of the Year, the 2018 Awards ceremony promises to be even bigger and better! A total of eight categories will feature recognising customer satisfaction, best customer experience, the most improved NLIS service, best NLIS Local Land Charges department, the Unsung Hero, the Local Land Charges Officer of the Year and the Local Authority Searches Team of the Year.  A winner and a highly commended for each category will be chosen by a panel of judges from leading organisations in the conveyancing searches market.

A shortlist for each award category will be made available to local authorities, sponsors and media in January 2018.  The winner and highly commended will be announced by the Award sponsors at the Awards dinner taking place at the Bristol Marriott Royal Hotel on Monday 5th March 2018.

Top tips for successful Award entries 

  • You can enter (or be nominated ) for more than one award category and doing so increases your chances of winning
  • Think carefully about your entry or nomination clearly stating why your team or a person should be considered
  • Include evidence and supporting information to back up your claims
  • Feel free to send attachments to support your entry to awards@land-data.org.uk
  • “Yes” or “No” answers should be used sparingly, as the more detail you give us the more the judges have to work on. Remember that some answers are weighted, “Yes” and “No” answers tend to score poorly.
  • Don’t be shy in reaching out to your direct customers and asking them to nominate you for the Customer Satisfaction Award. Experience tells us that the LAs who provide excellent service and have proactively asked for nominations in the past have frequently made the shortlist.
  • Keep your MyNLIS data up to date. We use imperical data to validate turnaround times and volume splits and while the NLIS Hub data is helpful, data submitted by MyNLIS gives a much wider picture.
