Yes sure. I am a co director. I was due to complete the sale of house on Monday but it has come to light a finance company has a legal charge on my house created 31.07.13 without my knowledge. I am hoping to do a deal with the finance company on Monday. If they agree how quick could they remove the legal charge?

The charge doesnt need to be removed to facilitate the sale,all the solicitor needs to do is get an undertaking from lenders solicitors to remove ithe charge and it can complete without any problem. Does that answer?
