I have 2 charges on a propert owned buy my privious boyfriends bungalow. I one tried to take the matter up but he got very abusive. I had a police order against him and a charge of asault so i deceied to wait until he died as I was frightened of him.He has now died but these charges were dated 1990 and before a got any legal help I wondered if they could have been removed without my knowledge,
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
But what is the charge for? The assault?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the charges were for money he borrowed to go into buisness with Mr John redhead but due to his dodgy dealings the buisness never got going.

I understand - when you say Police charges, what has this got to do with legal charge on house?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the Police charges have nothing to do with the charges. They were for him to go into buisness with Mr John Redhead but I was very frightened of him aand so left claiming the money until after he died. He was 16 years older than me. Now he has died before I started claiming the charges, I just needed to know if they can be cancelled without my knowledge. I am a disabled pensioner and do not want to embark on the process of claiming if they have been cancelled.

Ok. Then no a charge can't be removed without a person knowing or without a Court order.So can only be removed with chargeholder consent or a Court order.Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?ALex
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
If I started proceedings to recover these charges even if the house was not put up for sale would it be costly. If as I beleive, he has left a pile of lies regarding how these charges were made, would I stll be able to claim them
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
Yes you can still claim.Does that help?Alex

would it be costle and woyyld it be something yyou could deal with for me..
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
I cant be instructed sadly. The cost would be around £5000 if contested. £1000 if not. Does that clarify?
