If a liability is discharged, the person to whom it was owed may be asked to execute a formal release to acknowledge that he has no further claim. Where a security such as a mortgage is released e.g. when the secured debt has been repaid, the security document should be enclosed with a release or discharge executed by the person entitled to the security. The entries at the Companies Registry and Land Registry reflecting the charges need to be cancelled.
