Thank you for the question. It is my pleasure to help you with this today. Please bear with me if I ask for more information. can you please confirm that there is charge registered 22 5 09 on the HMLR title deeds?. What are you looking to do and what is your position in this. can I have as much detail as possible please?
If you give me the background, I can probably expand my answer.
This is called a restriction as it says
Disposition is a disposal but it does not mean a disposal in a literal sense, as in a sale although it includes a sale.
It means a disposal of a part of an interest.
That includes granting a mortgage/second charge, lease, remortgage, or sale.
So what it says is that the property cannot be sold or lease granted or re-mortgaged and they can be no other transactions on the property unless HSBC who have charged it seems dated 22 May 2009, agree.
The proprietor of the registered estate is simply the legal owner named on the deeds.
That does not stop anyone applying to court to enforce a debt by way of a charging order because the court can still grant the order, regardless of the restriction.
It is not necessarily so that whoever owns the property has financial problems because many lenders put these restrictions on from outset to make sure that their mortgagor/borrower does not incur further debts which might affect their ability to pay the principal mortgage.
Does that answer the question? Can I assist further?
The Land Regsitry search showed lenders HSBC and Lloyds.
I then did another search using landregistryservices.com and the results was:-

Basically I am trying to find out if there are any charges on the property, the couple in question have asked me to act as their agent to rent their property out as a holiday home. I have found out their business is in administration with 6 out of 9 outstanding charges and I want to make sure their house hasn't been used as a guarantee to their business debts. Basically I smell a rat, but I want to make sure as it could be a very profitable rental for us, but I don't want to take it on if there are going to be problems ahead.
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX you have clarified my thoughts that this is to risky for us.
