How does a CCJ affect me?

A CCJ will show on your credit file for six years, and will likely affect your ability to take out further credit, as lenders will be able to see that you have a CCJ.

Because of this, having a CCJ on your credit file makes it harder to take out further credit. However the most important thing is that you get free debt advice to manage your payments. Once you’re back in control, you can take steps to repair your credit file.

Your CCJ will also be added to a database called the Register of Judgments, Orders and Fines within a month. This will be removed after six years. The register is operated by a company called Registry Trust, and courts send them details of all new CCJs.

Received a letter of claim?

Before a creditor can proceed with a county court claim, they must send you a ‘letter of claim’ in the post, providing details of the debt.

If you receive a letter of claim, don’t panic. You have 30 days to respond with the reply form provided. However, it’s important to reply to the letter of claim within the timeframe given, as a creditor can begin court action if you don’t.

Use the reply form to:

  • Respond to the creditor
  • Fill in the enclosed financial statement (if you agree you owe the debt) to make an offer of payment if you can’t afford to pay the debt in full
  • Let the creditor know you’re seeking debt advice
  • Request more information from the creditor about the debt, if you need it

If you and your creditor can agree a repayment arrangement from your response, court action can be avoided.
