How does EquityCharges.com work? Read these case studies to discover how we can provide valuable protection for our clients.
Case study 1 – the tradesman
You’re a sole trader, and you’ve been working hard for many years to pay off your mortgage. One day, you’re involved in a job where the client threatens legal action.
Did you know that many lawyers will search the Land Registry to see what equity you have, when deciding whether it’s worth pursuing a lawsuit against you?
Use EquityCharges to remove your equity from the public register, and reduce the risk of being hit with an opportunistic lawsuit.
Case study 2 – the landlord
If you’re going to be out of the country for a while, it might seem natural to rent your home out while you’re away.
But did you know that you could be at risk of fraud? Tenants have sometimes been known to pose as homeowners, and fraudulently sell your property while you are away. When this happens, it can be a nightmare to sort out the legal situation with your home’s new ‘owners’.
Protect yourself, and your home, by putting a charge on your property with EquityCharges. This simple step means that your house cannot be sold without your knowledge, giving you peace of mind while you are abroad.
