They are not trading anymore. If you have an IVA with them you will have been transferred to another company and should have been informed of this.

Thanks for the swift reply. Now I have established Debt Matters are no longer trading, they put a disposition restriction in place on the mortgage register, how do I get this removed? We were only with Debt Matters for a period of a few months before it got handed over to Harrington Brooks. Maybe that's when the writing was on the wall for Debt Matters.

You can see if HB will deal with this for you, as the successor to Debt Matters. Or, you can do it yourself, which will take a little longer. Here is the information I was given by LandRegistyr when I enquired:

To withdraw a restriction H M Land Registry would normally expect to receive a completed form RX4 by the person or company that has the benefit of the said restriction. If the beneficiary is unable to provide this RX4 then this form should be completed by whomever has inherited the benefit of the restriction and appropriate evidence of devolution of title lodged as part of the application. This evidence should show a clear link between the beneficiary named on the title register and the applicant that has completed form RX4.
If restriction is not withdrawn, then an application would need to be made for its cancellation. Cancellation is the term used in rule 97 of the Land Registration Rules 2003 to refer to an application to cancel a restriction that is no longer required.
Any person may apply to cancel a restriction. The application must be made in form RX3 and no fee is payable.
We will cancel the restriction if we are satisfied that the restriction is no longer required. The application must be accompanied by evidence to show that this is the case. If anyone is referred to in the restriction and if an address for service is listed for that person, we will usually notify them of the application and give them an opportunity to object to the application before canceling the restriction.
Practice Guide 19 provides further information on notices, restrictions and the protection of third party interests in the register.

Are you still in an IVA?

Hi John602,

If your IVA was taken over by Harrington Brooks then it will have been transfered to Freeman Jones when HB went into administration in April 2018. Freeman Jones still exists but we use the brand Financial Wellness Group. If you can drop me an email to ian.williams at financialwellnessgroup.co.uk with some details relating to your IVA (your postcode or reference number if you have it) I'll ask the team to see if they can sort this for you.
