Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
Has your Solicitor contacted you concerning this Charge?
I take it that your Deeds are unregistered? Who is the Charge in favour of?
I look forward to hearing from you.
yes he has the deeds date from 1870 approx. the charge relates to a moneylender
Thanks for your reply.
Well, to enable you to complete your Sale, your Solicitor will need to obtain evidence from the Bank/B uilding Society that the Charge has been paid off in full.
Your Solicitor would normally therefore require form you any correspondence/account number you have kept concerning the Charge and then write to them to get this confirmation. I appreciate it appears you do not know what the Charge was for, and if this is the case, your Solicitor will just have to write to the Lender asking them to check their records and hopefully get confirmation that the Charge wa sindeed paid off may years ago. Sometimes, Lenders do forget to remove their Charge from the Land Charges Department's records,and this is what has hopefully happened.
I hope this assists but please let me know if you require any further clarification.
