Cyient, a global engineering and digital technology solutions company, announced that it has been selected by HM Land Registry (HMLR) to support its Local Land Charges (LLC) Programme.
HM Land Registry safeguards land and property ownership valued at £7 trillion, enabling over £1 trillion worth of personal and commercial lending to be secured against property across England and Wales. The Land Register contains more than 26 million titles showing evidence of ownership for more than 87 percent of the landmass of England and Wales.
Cyient has partnered with Esri UK and Xerox to deliver this project. The program aims to digitize and migrate millions of separately held local land charge records from local authorities into a centralized digital register. This will enable HMLR to provide a single and simple-to-use digital service for homebuyers and conveyancers.
Xerox's Capture and Content Services, which use artificial intelligence and machine learning, will automatically capture and validate information from digital and physical local land charge records. “
“Homebuyers and conveyancers expect easy and instant access to land records, because they make financial and legal decisions based on these documents,” said Darren Cassidy, Managing Director for UK and Ireland and Senior Vice President for Europe, Middle East & Africa cyient.com 2 (EMEA) Enterprise and Global Accounts Operations at Xerox.
“Xerox services together with Cyient's geospatial platform will automatically populate and enable a centralized digital register improving the citizen experience.” Cyient will own the entire process and provide a central management information platform, allowing for "single pane of glass" reporting, with the ability to drill down to prove data integrity and provenance. Cyient will provide all spatial capture and improvement services as well as textual capture.
