i took out a secured loan in 2006 and it got paid off in 2008

This answer was rated:

i took out a secured loan in 2006 and it got paid off in 2008 when it was closed and took another 1 out
the charge on the land registery shows 2006 so is this still enforcable against the loan taken out in 2008

JACUSTOMER-9g34r4e9- :

the chrage was put on an agreement that was paid off in full

JACUSTOMER-9g34r4e9- :

what is the time limit they have to ammend it to current account numbers?

JACUSTOMER-9g34r4e9- :

also how can they use a charge that is dated before the loan agrement?

Alex Watts : But you still have an outstanding secured loan? Does the charge say all monies?
JACUSTOMER-9g34r4e9- :

can i paste a decsrition from the land registry to you ?

JACUSTOMER-9g34r4e9- :

5 (22.08.2006) Charge dated 9 August 2006 in favour of Progressive
Financial Services Limited trading as Welcome Financial Services.

JACUSTOMER-9g34r4e9- :

that is all that is written on the landregistry file

JACUSTOMER-9g34r4e9- :

what im trying to determine is wether the new loan is secured

Alex Watts : Does it say all money charge?

not that i can see what i pasted is whats on the file

Alex Watts : Do you still have a loan with Welcome Finance?

yes we have a loan with welcome finance


which started in mid 2008

Alex Watts :

Ok - when was the old one paid off?


the same day as the new 1 was taken out

Alex Watts : Ok. That is just a secure charge then.
Alex Watts : Because you had the new loan on the same day there was an existing chagre.
Alex Watts : They do not need to remove the old one and put a new one on.
Alex Watts : There would be no point and it would only cost you more in legal costs.
Alex Watts : If on the day you had a new loan it does not require updating.
Alex Watts : This is because on the day the old loan was repaid you took out a new loan with them
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Alex Watts :
