Land charges and searches

Buying or selling a property is one of the biggest financial transactions you will make in your life so it's essential you get it right.

National land information service (NLIS)

Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council is currently achieving level 2 connectivity to the national land information service (NLIS) hub which means we can receive transactions electronically and return them completed through the post.

NLIS is a successful public/private partnership, backed by the government providing the only official local authority electronic searches to solicitors across the country. Solicitors are attracted to the numerous benefits of NLIS such as being able to track searches online, accurate property identification and having a direct debit to pay fees, thus eliminating much administration.
