Q1 :For letter purporting to satisfy/discharge a previously registered Order, should I state the memorial number of the Order in the Memorial No. of Transaction Satisfied box?
A:Court Orders are usually satisfied by another Court Order. For Letter/Memorandum of Satisfaction or other instruments purporting to satisfy a registered Court Order, whether the Memorial No. of the Court Order can be entered will depend on the terms of the subject instrument and the said registered Court Order. In other words, each case should be considered on its own facts.
