Yep most definitely something you need to sort out, and you are going to have to go back to the OR to do this!
When the BI was bought out from the OR, the deed of assignment should have been registered into the Deeds, AND the restriction should have been removed.
As a result you cannot sell (or the relative cannot sell it) because the restriction will effectively stop any sale.
OK looking back at the timings when this happened, this was a time when massive changes were taking place in the service. As a result a lot of 'admin' was over looked, or even worse temp staff were being used left right and centre at the time and they just get it right! Professionally not very good, but it has happened.........
Email/Write (initially phone to make sure you send the information to the right departments) to the Insolvency Services, asking them to:-
a) Remove the restriction (known as a Form J Restriction, which is removed by the IS using a Land Registry Form RX4)
b) either register the Deed, OR with agreement wit all parties, revocation of the assignment

Alternatively, contact the orignal ORs office if it is still open, you can find the current offices and contact details herehttps://www.insolvencydirect.bis.gov.uk ... dorsearch/
This is not an overly fast procedure, and they are going to ask for lots of proof especially if the Deed has not been noted on the IS ISCIS Computer system
But you will get there, honest
