County Court Judgments (CCJ's) are registered and can create difficulties for the debtor in the future in obtaining credit.
The obtaining of a CCJ will not necessarily prompt the debtor into making payment, and often the CCJ has to be enforced. There are various methods of enforcing CCJ's:
the instruction of High Court Enforcement Officer;
a charging order application against property owned by the debtor;
an attachment of earnings application if the debtor works in paid employment;
an application to freeze monies held in a bank account owned by the debtor (known as a third party debt order application)
