What is NLIS?
NLIS is a Modernising Government initiative to automate and integrate the provision of land and property information. It aims to make conveyancing and, ultimately, home buying, faster, easier and less stressful for everyone concerned.
To date, it is the most successful Public Private Partnership in the UK and has provided huge benefits to the legal profession.
The NLIS infrastructure has been built by private enterprise creating an electronic distribution structure that replaces the post.
- Data providers (local authorities, Land Registry, the Coal Authority, etc.)
- The NLIS hub (effectively a wholesaler without storage facilities)
- The NLIS channels (of which SearchFlow is one)
It all adds up to better information exchange
