This Practice Note considers how to apply to vary or discharge a charging order pursuant to CPR 73.10B in force as of 6 April 2016.
With effect from 6 April 2016 the procedure for seeking an interim and final charging order has changed, with amendment being made to CPR 73 and CPR PD 73 accordingly. The provisions of the Charging Orders Act 1979 (COA 1979) remain unchanged.
The aim of the changes is to centralise the process for dealing with straight forward charging order applications via issue in the County Court Money Claims Centre (CCMCC), with straight forward applications being dealt with by a court officer and only referred for judicial consideration if requested.
