Hello, this is Jim and welcome to JustAnswer. I will be the lawyer working with you today.Sorry to hear of the issue. I will set out my written answer shortly.
It would depend on the date of the judgment from the court (the county court judgment, or "CCJ"). The CCJ is live for up to 6 years. If the CCJ is older than that then it is highly likely the claim is now time-barred (breach of contract cases would require you to issue a claim at court by the 6th anniversary). If the debt was in 2006 and they owed you the money then, you would need to have issued the claim by 2012. Assuming you did that, the CCJ lasts for 6 years until 2018. Clearly we are now in 2021 so my view is you have no comeback as a) the CCJ is expired and b) you are out of time to issue another claim. I apologise for the bad news though I have to give you an honest answer.
