Hello, this is Jim and I’m a dual-qualified lawyer (UK & Republic of Ireland) happy to help you today.
Yes, assuming you lose, the CCJ is to be paid within 14 days otherwise the landlord can enforce it with bailiffs. If it is paid within 30 days from the date of court judgment then it will not be registered at credit agencies. Once made and you pay in full then a certificate of satisfaction needs to be filled out and sent to the court (see attached).
If he does take you to court and issues a claim, it will not be decided for at least 6 months assuming you defend the claim. Probably longer - due to the pandemic.
I hope this helps? If I have answered the question would you kindly leave me a 5 star rating (at the top of your screen), the question will stay open and any follow up questions are welcomed.
