    Land registry restriction

    Land registry restriction 24th Feb 13 at 11:26 AM
    Hi everyone,

    My husband's trustee in bankruptcy has applied for a restriction against our jointly owned property (only my husband is bankrupt).

    It's my understanding that when a bankrupt person jointly owns property then the trustee can apply for a Form J but the paperwork we've received doesn't specifically state that a Form J has been applied for. Perhaps this is usual? I don't know but if it's called a Form J then why not state that it's a Form J?

    Seems nothing is simple and so I'm wondering if anyone here can decipher the legal jargon and tell me if this is a Form J.

    "The restriction sought

    The applicant has applied for the following restriction to be entered in the register of your above title:

    RESTRICTION: No disposition of the registered estate, other than a disposition by the proprietor of any registered charge registered before the entry of this restriction, is to be registered without a certificate signed by the applicant for registration or their conveyancer that written notice of the disposition was given to (insert name) trustee in bankruptcy...."

    Any help would be much appreciated.
