OBTAINING A COPY CHARGE

Copy Charge

Case Particulars

I was instructed by an individual who had a charge on his residential address for over 20 years and he needed a copy of the charge to try and get it removed. 

The charge was for £5,000 plus 8% interest.  The client cannot recall ever signing the legal charge, and the debt wasn’t paid in full.  Thankfully, the creditor business was sold, and the new owner agreed to sign a discharge without further payment.

Services & Fees

To obtain a copy of a charge from HM Land Registry – £25 + VAT & £6 HMLR fee

File Open – 5 months

Top Tip

Always have a solicitor check any legal documents before you sign them.
