To have a CCJ on your credit record means that it will be virtually impossible for you to get credit, as it will show on your credit file as a Court Judgement for an Unpaid Debt. Most common examples of this are Parking Ticket companies, where a ticket is issued for a car that perhaps you have sold. Other examples include, Utility Companies, Mobile Phone Companies, and Debt Collection Agencies, some debts for which County Court Judgment CCJs have been issued range from £100 to £0.01p….Yes a CCJ for a debt of 1 pence – and this is happening all the time.
This practice has been widely reported in the press with those finding that they have a “Mystery CCJ” and people have subsequently been declined for Mortgages and Tenancy Agreements or new car finance, some of whom were in the middle of moving house and the CCJ blocked them from moving to their new home. More information
We will assess your case and examine how the CCJ came to be on your file and why you were not informed about it. This is not uncommon as there are many companies that systematically make claims for small amounts of money that can lead to a CCJ. If the papers for this debt are served on your previous address then you are likely to end up with a County Court Judgement “in default” this is because you have not replied to the court claim. If this is the case we can help you to make an application to set aside the County Court Judgement until the debt is either paid or formally disputed.
We can assign one of our experienced case workers to your file and they will help you to draft the required application in a legally correct format. They also help you to collate the required evidence to demonstrate that the CCJ should be set-aside on the correct legal grounds. The court application looks like a simple form and it is, if you know what you are doing. However, it is highly advisable to get some legal assistance, advice and guidance as if you make an application that is incorrect it is likely to be dismissed and then it will be far more difficult and perhaps costly to go back to the court again.
In some cases, where required and if we have time we will speak to the claimant or their solicitors to establish the basis of the claim and the timescales as to when the claim was made, what it was for and why they sent the papers to the wrong address. Subject to the service level that you opt for we will try and negotiate that the claimant will agree for the Court Judgement to be set aside whilst we are helping you to resolve the issue of the actual claim.
Once you have sent your information back to us, we will assess your case and advise you the likely prospect of your CCJ being removed, this is free of charge. If you would like more information about our services we will send you details of our charges and our terms and conditions before you make any payment or proceed with the service. We are Licensed and Qualified team of experienced paralegals and such we can also arrange court representation via our network of Court Advocates. We are also Licensed by the Bar Standards Board and able to arrange a Fully Qualified Barrister should your case be complex and require that extra level of care and attention to detail.
Paying the CCJ after 30 days has passed since the Judgement was registered will have the judgement simply marked as satisfied and this will not remove the judgment from the public register or your credit file, you are at liberty however to contact the court and request a certificate of satisfaction which is evidence that you have paid the judgment debt in full. The CCJ will remain on your credit file and the public register for 6 years from the date it was registered. If you are experiencing general debt issues we strongly encourage you to seek authorised and regulated debt advice and we would recommend that you contact Step Change or Payplan who offer free debt advice. If you are looking for free legal assistance we advise you to contact the Citizens Advice Bureau.
We offer a specialist fixed fee service, unlike CCJ Removal Solicitors who will charge by the hour, we offer a clear explanation of our charges at the outset so you know what you are signing up for. In addition, there is really no such thing as a CCJ Removal Solicitor per se, Solicitors are by their very nature “general legal advisors” and will advise all types of law, family, matrimonial, conveyancing, and wills and probate etc. Much like a medical GP. However the difference is that when you go to see your GP and you need specialist advice they refer you to a Specialist Consultant and indeed that is what we are, we are not CCJ Solicitors but we Specialise the this very niche and complex area of CCJ removal law. Our claim to some degree of fame is that we often get so called CCJ Solicitors calling us for guidance as to how to remove a county court judgment…High praise indeed! We have also had a number of clients that have instructed CCJ Solicitors or a general practice of local solicitors and they have not been able to assist our client, where we have later had the Judgment set aside or removed from the public register, which means that this is also removed from your credit file.
Parking fines are one of the biggest causes of CCJs in the UK due to the low level nature of the fine they can easily be missed. We have successfully dealt with many parking fine CCJ cases to help improve our clients credit reports.
One of the biggest operators in the UK are Parking Eye based in Chorley in the North West of England. They have contracts with land owners to manage their parking restrictions and issue Penalty Charge Notices (PCN’s) if you breach the Terms and Conditions of the Parking Regulations. Parking Eye have a contracts with many sectors such as; NHS Hospitals, Retail parks, Pubs & Restaurants, Supermarkets and Hotels.
Dealing with Parking Eye directly can be difficult as they are not contactable by telephone, they only have a “payment line” and can take some time to respond to emails.
Regardless of this Lender & Court Services do have a good working relationship with Parking Eye and we have had many Parking Eye CCJs removed from our clients credit reports.
