Loans If You Have A CCJ

CCJ loans are there for people who have a county court judgement against them. Cockle Finance offer many different loan types and our CCJ loans are perfect for anyone who has a CCJ and needs a loan.

How to get a CCJ Loan

Typically, a CCJ will be handed down to someone in the county court when it is acting in the capacity of a small claims court. The judge will make what is known as a money order, which will then specify how quickly such a debt must be paid off and what level of instalment must be met to prevent being in breach of the order. 

The problem that many people with a CCJ will face is that it can make it more difficult to access credit. This is often because a CCJ will usually mean that their credit score drops. Therefore, many high street lenders will consider them to be too high a risk to lend to. This is true for people who have paid off their debt through a CCJ – or are shortly to do so. Many people with a county court judgement against them find that getting a loan can be almost impossible.

FAQs for Customers Who Need A Loan But Have A County Court Judgement

What is a County Court Judgement (CCJ)?

A County Court Judgement, commonly known as a CCJ, is a type of court order in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland that might be registered against you if you fail to repay money you owe.

Can I apply for a loan if I have a CCJ?

Yes, it is possible to apply for a loan even if you have a CCJ. However, it’s important to note that having a CCJ can affect your credit rating, making it harder to secure loans or get favourable terms.

How does having a CCJ impact my ability to secure a loan?

Having a CCJ can negatively impact your credit rating, and lenders may see you as a higher risk. This might mean you are offered higher interest rates, lower loan amounts, or you may be declined outright. However, each lender has its own criteria and policies.

Can you consider my loan application if I’ve satisfied my CCJ?

Yes, we can consider your application even if you’ve had a CCJ in the past, particularly if it has been satisfied. A satisfied CCJ shows lenders that you’ve taken steps to settle your debts, which can be seen positively.

What is a ‘satisfied’ CCJ?

A CCJ is marked as ‘satisfied’ if you’ve fully paid off the money owed within a certain time frame, typically within a month of the judgement. It will still appear on your credit record but it will be marked as satisfied.

What should I consider before applying for a loan if I have a CCJ?

It’s crucial to consider your ability to repay the loan. Missing payments or defaulting on a loan can worsen your credit history. You should also think about the interest rate, the term of the loan, and whether the monthly repayments are affordable for you.

How can I improve my chances of securing a loan with a CCJ?

Demonstrating good financial habits can improve your chances. This might include paying bills on time, reducing existing debts, and not applying for too much credit at once. If your CCJ is already ‘satisfied’, this may also improve your chances.
