Can you get a CCJ without warning

Answered By: Douglas Barnes Date: created: Aug 01 2023

A County Court Judgement (CCJ) is a court order that can be issued against a borrower’s name if they fail to make repayments on a debt. They are used by creditors to reclaim the money owed, and can only be issued in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland– Scotland uses a different method called ‘enforcing a debt by diligence’.

  • When someone is unable to keep up with repayments on money they owe, or they have not reached an arrangement with their creditors to make up the missed payments, they could receive a County Court Judgement.
  • A CCJ for credit agreements under the Consumer Credit Act must be preceded by a warning letter, such as a default notice or a letter before action, at least 14 days before any action is taken.

The letter usually outlines steps the borrower can take to resolve the issue, and what could happen if it is left unresolved.

Can a CCJ be dropped?

If you do not owe the money, you can ask the court to cancel the county court judgment ( CCJ ) or high court judgment. This is known as getting the judgment ‘set aside’. You can also do this if you did not receive, or did not respond to, the original claim from the court saying you owed the money.

How many points is a CCJ on credit score

Answered By: Oliver Sanders Date: created: Mar 12 2024

The effect of missed payments, defaults & CCJs –

  • A missed payment on a bill or debt would lose you at least 80 points.
  • A default is much worse, costing your score about 350 points.
  • A CCJ will lose you about 250 points. (For many CCJs, there will already be a debt with a default on your record, in this case a CCJ then increases the harm to your credit record, but not by as much as 250 points.)

It doesn’t matter how large the size of the problem debt is. A £25 mobile bill has the same effect as not being able to make the repayments on a loan of ten thousand pounds. These problems are seen as less serious if they are older. Once a default is more than two years old, the negative effect falls to 250 points, then when it is over 4 years old it drops a bit more to 200 points.
