1. Dear *****, Is the debt a secured debt or an unsecured debt?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Not sure what you mean.
Expert:  Buachaill replied 1 year ago.
2. Is the debt attached to property or is it simply a money judgment?
Expert:  Buachaill replied 1 year ago.
3. A mortgage or a charge is where a debt is attached to property.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It's a money judgement.
Expert:  Buachaill replied 1 year ago.
4. Then you can ignore it. The time limit on the enforcement of a judgment is six years. So any matter from 2006 is now time barred. So you should write back to the bailiff and tell him it is time barred and not to trouble you again. The Limitation Act applies to give you a good defence to any claim on the judgment.
