Charging Order Registered with Land Registry

Recommended Posts

Need some advise on this.

I will try to be brief


I discovered by accident when searching my title deeds that there was an entry by Lloyds TSB dated 2009 regarding an outstanding overdraft for a dissolved company that I was a director. I have no notification of this charging order.

As Lloyds TSB no longer exists, I contacted Lloyds to shine some light.


They (after some denial of existence) come back with information that this was for the overdraft. 


Lloyds say "They no longer have an interest in this debt" and have sold on the amount to Cabot financial.

I have had no contact from Cabot since 2009.


I contacted Land Registry to remove the order as the order is in the name of lloyds TSB who no longer have an interest.


Land Registry refuse to remove unless Lloyds instruct them to.

Lloyds will not as they no longer have interest and refer me to Cabot, and if cabot agree, then they will remove the order.


If I contact Cabot, will they want payment?

Is the Land Registry correct in not removing the order?

What date was the CCJ that resulted in the CO?

It would have been Cabot that got it using your old address as you didn't inform your creditors you'd moved in writing?

Also you should know that when creditors sell debts, they sell the rights but they can never sell the duties.

This means that any complaint you have, you can make it against the original creditor. You can make it against the debt purchaser as well but very often you are better off going against the original creditor. They won't like it because they think that by having got rid of the debt, they have gotten rid of all responsibility – but that is not the case.

The original CCJ was 12 June 2009 from Lloyds TSB. Cabot have not been in touch about this.


The entry on Land Registry is from Lloyds TSB not Cabot

did you sign a personal guarantee with LLoyds re the OD?


yes sorry..2009 was a time when Lloyds did still do litigation.


had you moved and not informed LLoyds of a change of address?


the CCJ and its enforcement ..the CO is now owned by cabot

you wont get it removed by simply asking.


is this home solely in your name as was the debt?

Cabot are now the Judgment claimant......the debt has been assigned to them.Its irrelevant who,s name it is in with regards to your Deeds. The charge will remain on your property until its settled..they wont remove it.


The CCJ itself is 10 years old...so obviously Cabot are content to let it sit as security until you either settle or sell.

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

      Do you have a mortage arears claim to make? Then post your story on the forum here

    • I am new here but very glad to find my way here and would welcome any input.
      i purchased a brand new campervan conversion from Hillside Leisure (175 miles from our home) on July 26th for £31,000 and, within 48 hours, during a storm, the alarm began to sound incessantly. We could not get it to stop, even after trying everything listed in the manual. We phoned Hillside on Saturday July 28th around 2.00pm. The young man who answered the phone said he would seek the advice of their technician and call us back, which he did. The technician told us that they, Hillside, couldn’t help, but that we should take the van to Nissan (the van is a Nissan) as the fault would lie with one of their components.
