    CCJ not showing on file

    CCJ not showing on file 8th Jan 19 at 6:23 PM
    Debt from 2013. Last payment 2013. I live in Scotland debt is statue barred. Or is it because I acknowledged the debt via telephone in 2016?

    Anyhow I have been told in 2016 they applied for and was awarded a CCJ. However I never received court papers. Because they sent it to an old address. It was actually my mum's old address not even mine. My mum moved in 2014. Ccj was issued in 2016.

    CCJ is not on my credit file. Is this because it was applied for at an address that wasn't actually mine?

    I haven't paid a penny since the CCJ was awarded. I don't work and don't own my house. Baliffs aren't allowed to force entry in Scotland. Should I just continue ignoring it until 2022? (6 years after CCJ was awarded).

    They will send the CCJ to the last known address they have for you.

    Credit is linked to a person not an address - if you didn’t update then when you moved then that’s why it was sent there.

    Can i dispute it based on the fact I didn't actually receive the court documents?

    My mum moved in 2014. Ccj was granted 2016.

    The ccj isn't showing on my credit profile I've searched with equifax experian and noodle.

    I think it is because it wasn't actually applied for at my address....but rather my mum's address..

    Is that address shown as a linked address on your credit file?

    Why did they send it there if you have no connection there apart from your mum living there?

    No you not updating your address isn’t a worthy dispute reason.

    The debt is linked to a person not an address

    That address isn't linked on my credit profile. I was homeless at the time had no other mail going to the house but had told the company claiming to have CCJ that was my mailing address.

    If it is not showing on any of the CRAs and you've never had any account / electoral roll entry at the address then it is likely that the CRAs haven't matched the CCJ to you. In the UK CRA assign information to people by matching their name, date of birth and address(es), they factor in non exact matching of details to find people.
