Interim charging order question

Good morning, 

I have an interim charging order on my property which I am in the process of selling. 

I have cleared the debt in full which was sold onto Link financial although the charging order is still registered under Lloyds Bank. 

Link have said they have informed Lloyds Banks legal team that the debt is settled in full and it is now on them to lift the charge. 

My first question is how long does this process usually take? My solicitor will not proceed until the charge is removed or at least the application to remove is with the land registry. I have provided written proof of payment from Link which refers to the court reference number stipulated on the charge record. 

Is this all done electronically or would there be a wait in the backlog of forms awaiting action that I have seen on this forum? 

Many thanks in advance for any advice.

    why not raise a complaint with lloyds
    Don't put your trust into an Experian score - it is not a number any bank will ever use & it is generally a waste of money to purchase it. They are also selling you insurance you dont need.
