The land registries letter says:-
The matter I received legal aid or funding was finished a long time ago. Does the Lord Chancellor still have the right to a restriction?
As long as money is owed, the statutory charge remains in force and the Lord Chancellor is entitled to apply restriction. The land registry say in their letter one of the grounds it can be "it is not entirely clear whether a delay of more than 12 years in applying restriction might mean that that the Lord Chancellor loses the right to make such an application (under the Limitation Act 1980)
I don,t quite understand if the Lord Chancellor loses the right to make such an application does that mean that the money is still owed?
I hope that is a little clearer
