Not sure what you mean by Default Judgement. I have had a County Court Judgement set against me. Possibly the same thing
That's right. I did not receive any documents. So I did not turn up at court. If I knew that a process was underway I would have dealt with it. My business is too important to me to have any judgements. We were still talking with the creditor at the time of the judgement. He did not even tell me that a process was underway.
The money was owed and it was paid 2 days after the Judgement was made without knowing the process had started. Had the judgement been made in my knowledge and I had paid the money within 30 days I could have applied simply to the Registry Trust to have it removed from any files. My question was originally does the CCJ in my name at a business address affect my credit file in my name at my home address.
In the Part 13 Rule. Does that apply to Northern Ireland
This is really confusing. We did not pay the Judgement because we did not know there was one. We paid the principle sum 2 days after the Judgement date. We only found out about a Judgement on 4 May.
Surly this is reason enough to seek to have the action set aside.
The date of Judgement was 27 March.
I would understand that process but because I did not know there was any Judgement but a Judgement was taken I did not pay the fees or interest claimed until last week. That payment is outside the 30 days allowed to have the Judgement removed. Only the principle sum was paid again because I was not aware of any court proceedings.
