Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Did the judge specify how long to pay please?
1) The court rule says you have 14 days, unless specified by the court.
2) Payment direct is fine, you can't pay into court. You can pay by cheque and then you can show he cashed it. Or by direct bank transfer
3) You can but you need to make an application to court and this may effect your credit rating.
4) You will get a ccj but if you pay it off In full within 28 days it will be cancelled and won't show in your credit file.
But if you spread payments then it is not paid off in full and the ccj will remain on your credit file.
Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please?
If payments spread within 28 days you won't get a ccj. If spread outside 28 days you will have a ccj.
The rules are clear, unless the court ordered otherwise you pay within 14 days. But in any event if you want to pay without getting a ccj it must be within 28 days.
To spread payments you make an application on form n245
Does that clairfy?
Thanks, it's 14 days unless otherwise ordered. Good luck.
By the way it's rule 44.7
