Hi am after some advice I have a Ccj against me have contacted the court on this matter and was given ferther details of who to contact wich is the solicitor dealing with the case they have informed me that the amount to pay has increased due to interest, is this correct as I was under the impression that’s all I had to pay was the amount set out in the Ccj

    If the court judgement did not include mention of interest then you satisfy the judgement by paying the sum ordered.

    If they want to make you pay more and you do not agree you should,  they must take out a further court claim.

    National Debtline have a factsheet on interest after judgement

    You need the court to provide you with the original claim details and the wording of the judgement if you do not have these items in your possession. If there's no mention of interest then keep paying until the balance is paid, then have the argument. Don't assume that a 'solicitor' knows anything.
