CCJ and mortgage application
in Credit file & ratings
3 replies 143 views
Hi, I recently received a letter from a debt collector. It turns out that the garage that my car was being serviced at in 2019 parked my car in the adjacent public car park which resulted in a fine, but as my car was registered at my old address I never received the letter. Fast forward a few years, the debt is up to about £300 and has gone through the court. I've paid the money but am worried that it will effect my credit score and mortgage application later this year. Once a debt has been paid, does a CCJ go from your file? Can anyone advise? Thank you
