Charge

The document evidencing mortgage security required by Crown Law (law derived from English law). A Fixed Charge refers to a defined set of assets and is usually registered. A Floating Charge refers to other assets which change from time to time (ie. cash, inventory, etc.), which become a Fixed Charge after a default.

2. Informal; to buy something on credit, especially with a credit card or charge card. That is, one who uses a credit card for transactions is said to charge those transactions.
