Are CCJs registered on a tenants credit file automatically? If not, how do I get my judgements registered?
No it is not automatically registered, which is why the Tenant Referencing UK system is such a useful tool for landlords and letting agents who’ve been left with unpaid rent arrears and/or property damages.
If you have requested a money order and the tenant hasn’t paid it within the 14 days, you must call the court, quote the case reference number and tell them that the tenant has failed to pay and that you want the judgement registered against them so that a CCJ shows up on their credit file. CCJs can only be enforced after 28 days, so once this time has elapsed you can check it’s been registered at trustonline.org.uk.
