A new landlord member has recently shared their story with us regarding a rogue tenant they've uploaded onto the database, that we'd now like to share with you here:
If a defendant has a county court judgement and they do not pay it, the judgement is automatically registered if the money is not paid. You have to inform the court as soon as the time allowed by the Judge elapses.
It does not cost the plaintiff any more money. There would be no point in having a register of judgements if the court did not register them. It does cost a further fee if you want the court bailliff to chase the debt, but these guys do not have the power of the High Court Enforcers you see on TV and your tenant is probably a lowlife who is a waste of valuable time anyway.
What address was the summons served at.
The guy sounds like a conman who probably does this sort of thing regularly. I can only suggest that you tighten up the way you find tenants and never take anything on face value. Make all checks and ask for their contract of employment, I always ask for a reference from their boss and I would never take someone who says they are self employed. Good people do not mind providing references and an ample deposit. Unfortunately you got a bad egg, the one thing you can rely on, is you have learnt an expensive lesson.
Good luck in the future.
Once you have requested the judgement the debtor has 28 days in which to pay if the debtor pays within the 28 Day period then no CCJ will show in that debtors name as it will be satisfied in full.
if the debtor decides to pay outside of the 28 day period then the CCJ will remain on file for the elected period. But it will be marked as satisfied on the register, once satisfied the debtor is sent a letter of satisfaction.
The debtor may at any time write to the court and advise them that they have satisfied the debt, a letter will be sent via the courts to the claimant asking if this request is true you have 28 days in which to reply to the claim.
