What is a CCJ (County Court Judgment)?
A county court judgment or better known by the abbreviated term CCJ is a type of debt that is being collected due to a county court judgment. This is a process carried out when someone is owed money. Filing one of these will then take your case to the courts where they will decide if there is a debt to be paid.
If the courts agree a CCJ is then issued and a payment plan confirmed. If you pay the CCJ within 30 days, then this will have no affect on your credit score. It is only when the debt is ignored, or the agreed payment plan is broken that more issues start to occur. This is most notably when looking to take out a large loan such as a mortgage.
The country court judgment is only available in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. While this excludes Scotland, we have numerous customers now who have chosen to relocate to Scotland but that does not mean the CCJ just disappears.
Can I Get A Mortgage with a CCJ?
The simple answer is Yes, with the right expert advice you can certainly get a mortgage with a CCJ.

How long does a County Court Judgment remain on my credit score?
A County court judgment will remain on your credit record for 6 years. It’s a common misconception that people must wait the full time before applying and being accepted for a mortgage. This is due to people often being rejected first time by high street banks. With the right advice and guidance, you can obtain a mortgage while still dealing with the County Court Judgment (CCJ).
Please note that if a CCJ is paid within 30 days this will in no way effect your credit score should always look to pay it where possible.
