Government forcing landlords to house non-paying tenants for lengthy periods11:18 AM, 15th September 2020
About A week ago 40
My father (who died 20 years ago) owned a piece of land in Kent. There are 10 separate charges / creditor’s notices on the land dating from 1975 to 1987 related to bankruptcy.
My mother applied to the Land Registry for an official copy of the Creditors Notice and Bankruptcy Inhibition for the charges, however they state they do not hold copies of those documents.
We are finding it impossible to get any information at all on the creditors’ names or amounts involved.
We are looking to either sell the land or gain planning to build a house, however we need to deal with these charges in the first instance. If we were to put an advertisement in the Gazette, would this be sufficient to apply for the charges to be lifted if no creditor comes forward?
If you have any advice or can recommend someone who may be able to investigate and get this sorted for us, it would be very much appreciated.
