If you are offering a settlement of the debt and they accept the settlement as full and final settlement of the debt then there will be no debt remaining. The charge had the effect of securing the debt against the property and if there is no more debt the charge is no longer required. Whether they will accept an offer, of anything less than the original debt, and removal of the charge can only be answered by the creditor
