County Court Judgement Web Service Overview

County Courts in England & Wales are able to enforce a judgement on debtors who have defaulted on their debts. After a CCJ has been registered the debtor has 28 days to pay the debt, if the debt is paid within 28 days the debtor can apply for the CCJ record to be removed. If the debtor pays the debt after 28 days, the record of the CCJ will remain but will be marked as Satisfied.

Details of any matched CCJ records are then returned as a JSON encoded object.
