is a judgment creditor entitled to interest when he will not tell the Judgment debtor
what that interest is. ~The debt has sbene paid by instalments and the Judgment
Creditor/Solicitors willnot provide a statment including any interest due?
Hi, welcome to the site. My name is ***** ***** I will help you with your question. Could you tell me whether the payment by instalments was reached as part of a court order or did you agree it with the claimants solicitors? Are the claimants solicitors simply refusing to tell you the amount of interest which is due? Was the judgment for over £5k? Have you paid the judgment debt off?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

1. The instalments were agreed by the Court.

2. The Judgment debt was in excess of £5000 and in the High Court.,

3. The Solicitors have refused to give a statement inlcluding intereet simply submitting a statement of what has been paid. a small sum was

left outstanding whilst at my request for details of interest was awaited.

3. The creditor has a charging order on the property and will use this

to hold me to ransom.

Thank you for the additional information. Have the solicitors specifically asked you /expecting you to pay any outstanding interest? - the solicitors behaviour seems odd.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

The Solicitors have not specifically asked for interest but have not

removed the charging order from the Entries at Land Registry. The

Solicitors' action has always been odd.

Thanks. Do you have a copy of the instalment order made by the court? That should tell you if any interest is due. Often, a court will reduce the interest to zero when such an order is made.
It sounds like you may not in fact owe any interest.
Can I suggest you write to the solicitors by letter enclosing the last part of the outstanding debt you mentioned and stating that as the debt is paid it should now take steps to ask the land registry to remove the entry relating to the charge? Ask them for written confirmation within 7 days that this had been done otherwise you will make a formal complaint to the Legal Ombudsman. Keep a copy of your letter.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can clarify anything for you?
