Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
You need to write and ask him to do it within the next 7 days or say you will take him to Court and seek an Order that he provides it and seek costs against him.
If he refuses then you can issue proceedings using form N1:

The court will issue the claim and decide whether to make an order. He would be liable for any costs incurred in doing this. You are seeking a Court order that he 'deliver up' the certificate.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
