    Dubious CCJ for NHS Aintree

    Dubious CCJ for NHS Aintree 9th May 18 at 8:54 PM
    Hello to all
    Hoping for some advice and help here hopefully.
    Today I received a dubious looking letter from the County court supposedly (small crown in a circle, but no official looking stamp).
    It says that the claimant is the Aintree University NHS Trust and that I owe them 169. Address for payment being a Trethowans LLP in Southampton.
    First I have heard of anything to do with this. I was rushed to that Hospital with a head trauma and was treated there at the beginning of this year.
    It states that the judgement for claimant (in default) top left of letter.
    I have no idea of what any of this means and I have never had any CCJ served before so I am really quite worried. So I am hoping that someone could shed some light please.
    Thanks in advance.

    Did you receive any paperwork from the court before this? Before a ccj is issued there is usually a mountain of paperwork. Have you received absolutely nothing?

    If so you should be able to get a set aside. Look at the top of this board for a thread that tells Newbies to read it first. In that thread is an explanation of the court process including getting a set aside.

    I would have thought its for a vehicle registered to yourself that incurred a parking charge that was never paid

    TRETHOWANS will have acted as solicitors for the trust and issued an MCOL, a court claim against you which you have failed to deal with , leading to a default judgement , a CCJ

    if you know nothing about this, it will cost you 255 for a set aside , read the NEWBIES FAQ sticky thread about set asides etc, near the top of this forum

    if this isnt paid (or set aside) , your credit rating will be trashed for 6 years, so it is important

    I would say that the document is genuine, especially if it originated from the CCBC in Northampton (the government central office for court claims)

    then you need to figure out why the court and solicitors knew your current address for this CCJ yet never got any of the mountains of paperwork to you, including the parking charge , reminders , debt collector letters, court papers etc

    start with any vehicle you had at the time , could it have incurred a pcn ? is that vehicle registered in your name at your current address etc

    there has to be a reason why the paperwork never got to you until now, which is what you will need for a judge to set it aside

    that address is the MANUAL HANDLING CENTRE in SALFORD , so its one of the 2 court case offices that deal with these claims, so it will be genuine

    google it if you dont believe me

    well if you dont do what I said then how are you going to convince a judge to set it aside for you ?

    especially when its clear that the court has your current address ?

    Ok. There is more... My wife has just informed me that she left the car outside A&E and got a ticket and threw it away, and subsequently received letters relating to the matter but threw them away also, as she didnt want to worry me. Great! It would appear there is nothing much that I can do (vehicle registered to me) but pay the debt now. Thanks for the input.

    I take it that it is too late to appeal the case at this stage then and if I pay then nothing will be recorded against my credit rating?

    What is the date of the CCJ?

    If you pay within a month of the judgment, then it will be removed from the register.

    You need to pay the Claimant and get a receipt.
    It might be a good idea to send a SAE for the return of a receipt.

    Inform the court that payment has been made. Show them the receipt.

    I believe the Claimant should inform the court, but it is in your interest to make sure the court knows in a timely manner.

    as above, pay it , get a receipt , show receipt to the court so the CCJ can be removed or wiped or whatever from the register

    ensure this is done and if necessary check that NO ccj is registered against you by using trustpilot or similar

    its far to late to appeal anything, the only other action is a set aside where you pay 255 and ask a judge to set it aside so you can fight the original court claim, this may or may not be granted by the judge and they may or may not allow you to get the 255 back

    given that the address used was correct then you may have difficulty in setting it aside

    I think you need to pay and get the CCJ expunged so it does not affect your credit rating for 6 years

    a harsh lesson and your ladyship needs a reality check

    Hindsight, I take it that I would have had the opportunity to appeal if pursued correctly?
