Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know what is it you want to achieve?
Are you seeking to get an order that the property be sold?
we want to put a charging order on her property
how much luck we got
we got court charge and now how we can get our money back ,
OK - you already have a County Court Judgement.
Did you apply for that to become a charge or you want to do that?
we want to do that
we got judgement
Ok - what you need to do is get a copy of the land registry report
You can do this here:
There is a cost of about £6 I think
Once you have this then you need to apply for a formal charge using form:
It is N379
You need to complete this and send a copy of the Land Registry document to the Court.
The fee is £100
formal charge using form yes we saw solicitors he asked 1000
Once the Court grants an interim Order you send that to the Land Registry with a fee of £50
You can do this yourself.
Then once its registered at the Land Registry the Court will list this for a formal hearing
The court will then consider whether to make the order final
As there is a CCJ Judgment then the Court will
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
the solicitor ask lots of money and if thearing will be we have to pay for barrister ,and if we succseesful thwn force to sale he said
Well you need the charge first.
Then you can get an order for sale
One step at a time
But you can either apply for the charge yourself or get another Solicitor to do it at a different firm, a cheaper one
You dont need the same Solicitor
do you know any one
or can you do that
I do them all the time, but I am not allowed to be instructed to do this for you, it is against site rules
You can find a local High Street firm and get several quotes
i didnt get high street firm
Yes but if you look in local area
if l get charging order force her to sale and court will decide she cant be homeless
do l have a change to win the case
The Court wont have that choice.
The Judge looks at the value of the charge and sees whether there is equity
If there is then the Court will usually grant an order for sale
even she got court charge she doesnt respond yet i know she went to her solicitor l guess she got good advise
But I have given you the forms to apply for a charge. Does that help?
if i go to solicitor how much should it cost do you think
To get a charge probably £400
yes i will try myself , but i prefet solicitors
