    CCJ and Full and Final Settlement 30th Nov 17 at 12:55 PM
    I've recently offered Lowell 25% of a debt which they obtained a CCJ for and have accepted. The letter has the standard wording "Once you account has been closed, we will contact all credit file referencing agencies and amend the balance on this default to show as partially satisfied. The default will be amended to show as partially satisfied due to the discount negotiated with the settlement figure previously mentioned. Please be assured that this status does not imply that any further payment will be required on this account."

    My question is, is this enough to get the CCJ marked as satisfied? I understand that a CCJ can not be shown as partially satisfied.

    When you made the offer did you make it clear is was in full and final settlement of the account to satisfy the judgement.

    Hi there

    You are correct that a CCJ cannot be shown as partially satisfied. If you contact the court to tell them the debt has been satisfied they will need to see proof of payment. As you cannot demonstrate you have paid the full balance it is very unlikely they will agree to show it as satisfied.

    If Lowell are prepared to contact the court and tell them the debt has been satisfied that may be sufficient for the court. You will need to discuss this further with Lowell. Good luck with it all.
