Paragon Finance Plc (Formerly the National Home Loans Corporation Plc) v Pender and Pender: ChD 25 Nov 2003

Section 114 of the 1925 Act has no application to Registered Land. It provides for a transfer ‘unless a contrary intention is expressed’ in the mortgage. Thus if section 114 applies, all depends upon the true construction of the mortgage. The power under the Civil Procedure Rules to revoke an earlier order included a power to revoke an order made under the earlier rules. Peter Smith J: ‘In my opinion, section 114 LPA 1925, either has no impact in the case of a transfer of a registered charge under registered land or its effects are subject to the need for the transferee to become registered proprietor under the LRA regime.’ and
‘In my judgment although s. 114 LPA does not say so it is not intended to apply to transfers of registered charges under the LRA 1925. The regime for transferring those charges is the statutory regime to which I have made reference above.’
‘That does not mean that section 114 will have no effect.’
