County Court Judgement (CCJ)

  • If debtors owe rent or other monies a landlord can apply for a County Court Judgement (CCJ), through the County Court in the location of the debtor.  If the debtor tenant fails to pay, then the landlord must apply to the court for a warrant of execution - a bailiff will attend the tenant's residence and seize goods to the value of the debt. The CCJ remains on the register for 6 years  if not paid within 30 days.  This will make it difficult for the debtor tenant to get a loan or a job.
