Technically thus the charge is still payable on the sale of the property but to the Crown. You can sell the property but you would need to ensure as with any other mortgage that the charge is paid off at the time of completion. As such you need to be in correspondence (sooner rather than later - they are often slow) with the Treasury's Solicitor. I attach a helpful leaflet - https://www.gov.uk/guidance/sending-money-due-to-the-crown-under-a-bona-vacantia-mortgage-bvc5Please rate positively - thanks
