Thank you for the reply and my apologies for the delay replying...technical problems!
My Experian credit rating is excellent (999 out of 999) so part of me wonders why bother reversing out this 2013 CCJ. However, I believe it was issued incorrectly and the other part of me would like to correct this.
I am happy to pay a legal person to get this reversed and my case for doing so is below. If you can send me your email address I will send you the full version with all of the supporting correspondence with all relevant parts highlighted (I can't attach a document with Just Answer.
Please read the summary below and let me know what you think?
Very best regards
***** ***** -v- National Westminster Bank Plc
Claim Number: 2QT41296
This document, and the follow on correspondence, demonstrates that every conceivable action was taken by ***** ***** to pay the Legal fees awarded by the Court.
It further proves that actions requested of Wandsworth Court were outstanding until 5th December 2012 and that the subsequent discussions were on going with NatWest until settlement of these legal fees, awarded by the Court, were settled in full.
It finally demonstrates a complete desire to get the matter resolved by ***** ***** and that all delays were caused by either NatWest and or their solicitors whilst waiting for correspondence from Wandsworth County Court

This is untrue. It has a profound effect on your credit rating!

Letter dated 12th June 2013 from A Hill to NatWest chasing a decision based on discussions at the meeting on 30th May 2013. At this point it was also discovered this matter had been registered and it was effecting my credit rating (this had never been mentioned by anyone (CMS Cameron, NatWest, The Court and whilst negligence is no defence, I have never always paid for everything on time and have a perfect credit rating. I did not have the resources to pay a solicitior and had spend the entire time since the Court awarded costs to NatWest trying to find a solution to pay these costs.
Letter dated 8th July 2013 to CMS Cameron requesting account number and sort code to pay the Court fees. (Irronically they would only accept a check and then had to wait for NatWest to confirm it had cleared!
Letter from dated 29th July 2013 from CMS Cameron confirming the Court fees had been settled.
The CCJ was registered by NatWest whilst I was waiting for information from the Court regarding payment terms. NatWest was fully aware of the communications with the Court.
In other words, the Court ruled that the debt was owed. I asked for information from the Court regarding payment terms and was waiting for their reply and the next thing I knew is that a CCJ had been registered against my name, even though NatWest was fully aware of the communications with the Court.
Why was the CCJ registered against me when I was in active discussion with the Court to agree payment terms.
Why can't we apply to the Court to have this CCJ dismissed on the basis that I was waiting for information from the Court when the deadline for paying the debt passed?
