Land Data Releases Local Land Charges Awards for Excellence Shortlist

26 May 2021

Land Data, the National Land Information Service (NLIS) regulator, has today revealed the shortlist of finalists for their upcoming 2021 Land Data Local Land Charges Awards for Excellence.  After a 2-month period of judging the shortlist is now finalised.  Entries and nominations were submitted by solicitors, conveyancers, customer service experts and Local Land Charges personnel.

Since their launch in 2008, the annual Local Land Charges Awards for Excellence, are the only national awards celebrating the achievements and successes of Local Authority Local Land Charges departments across England and Wales.

The Awards, which will be presented virtually as part of the Local Land Charges Training & Development event to be held on June 8 & 9, include just 5 categories this year covering the Best Performing LLC department, the Customer Satisfaction Award, the LA Searches Team of the Year, and the Unsung Hero Award.    

The Award sponsors are The Coal Authority, The Local Land Charges Institute, and the National Land Information Service (NLIS).

This year’s shortlist is made up of 39 local authority teams and 11 individuals who have all demonstrated excellence and willingness to adapt throughout the pandemic and in the busiest property market for well over a decade.

Jan Boothroyd, Chief Executive of Land Data, comments: “We created the Local Land Charges Awards for Excellence 13 years ago to encourage and highlight best practice and excellence in the sector. I think with everything that has happened in the past 14 months, it is more important than ever to acknowledge achievements and exceptional service.    The positive comments we received from conveyancing solicitors who applaud those local authorities going above and beyond to deliver an excellent customer service were outstanding.”
