In order to deal with a mortgage which is a negotiable instrument, you must submit the original document.
Mortgages which are negotiable instruments include owner’s mortgages, but not indemnity bonds.
If a mortgage which is a negotiable instrument is lost, you can lodge an application for cancellation of the mortgage with the district court. A court fee is charged, and the cancellation process typically takes 3-12 months before the court renders its judgment ordering the cancellation of the mortgage.
Cancellation means that the physical document is declared “null and void”.
The mortgage can subsequently be removed from the Register of Shipping or a ‘replacement’ mortgage may be executed for your disposal.
You can read more about cancellation at Domstol.dk
To apply for mortgage cancellation, you must submit a copy of the mortgage, as well as other documents, to the court. You can order a copy by writing to email@example.com.
