If you are looking to obtain a county court judgment or have been served with one - we are the team to help. Call today.
If someone issues county court claim against you and you either fail to defend the county court claim or are unsuccessful in defending the claim, the county court will normally make a county court judgement against you.
The county court judgement will normally order you to pay money to another person or company within a specified period of time (normally 14 days) If you then pay the county court judgement within one month of the date of the county court judgement, the county court judgement will disappear and will not affect your credit rating.
However, if you fail to pay the county court judgement within 1 month of the date of the judgement, then the judgement will automatically be registered on the Register of Judgments, Fines and orders where it is available for viewing by banks and other credit reference agencies.
As such, it is very important that if you receive a county court judgement, you should not ignore it, especially if you have a valid defence as to why the court were wrong to issue the county court judgement.
