How to read Land Registry register?



New Member
Hello Everyone,

It's my first post here.
Very helpful forum, by the way,

Could anybody please explain to me how to read a title absolute in register?

Looking at the example below:
The people bought the house in 2007, so why there is a restriction about HSBC bank from 2013?Does it mean they didn't have a mortgage before and got one on 2013 ?

Thank you very much for any help.

Title absolute

2 (09.03.2007) The price stated to have been paid on 30 August 2006 was

3 (04.04.2013) RESTRICTION: No disposition of the registered estate by
the proprietor of the registered estate is to be registered without a
written consent signed by the proprietor for the time being of the

Charge dated 3 April 2013 in favour of HSBC UK Bank PLC referred to in
the Charges Register.
