    Either print off your entry from the insolvency site here (if your a recent discharge)

    Or
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Just send an email to Discharge.Queries@insolvency.gsi.gov.uk and they'll send you a discharge letter as a pdf.
    give your full name address, dob, court number and NI number.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    both these options would be free....if you require the official court discharge cert (most people dont tbh)
    it's around £75 and depends on how busy your court is really you'd have to ring and check with them.
    Not quite a newbie as you think (the member formally known as philnicandamy!)

    Thanks for the info, i needed the certificate, rang the cour, explained what i wanted, they said to email them my details etc then ring back after an hour to make a payment of £70, she said she will send me 3 coppies in todays post first class, cant be any fairer than that so im a happy bunny.

    oh shame if you had followed the link to the I.S it would have been free.
    Its always a good idea to print it off in the first 3 months post B.R before it disappears.

    Letter from Insolvency Service (official receiver) would have sufficed and it's free. I've used my discharge notification to all lenders and it's been accepted - even a scanned and emailed copy.

    Thats interesting then as i have the letter from the insolvency service but aparently that isnt solid enough to open a bank account, oh well at least i have the certificate so should be no more issues.
