A copy of an existing certificate is £19. This has to be no more than 2 years old and where there have been no changes to the accommodation.

A copy certificate can be obtained by telephoning our Contact Centre on (01772) 906907.

A person in UK received about a million pounds and wishes to take the cheque out of UK. Apparently needs clearance and has been told that will cost 8000 pounds. Does this sound legitimate ?

I had a few responses to do with ENTRY clearance but this is about clearance to take a cheque for million points OUT of the UK. What fees apply for clearance and agent / lawyer to process paperwork / documentation etc
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
can I get a response to my question rather than the totally irrelevant response I've been given ?
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
this is completely nonsensical, I am getting no intelligible responses
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
can I get a proper response ?? seems I'm only getting computer generated rubbish

Apologies, this is beyond my remit. I will opt out and allow another expert to provide guidance on clearance cheques.
