What does it check?
Using civil court records, we'll check whether an individual has been involved in civil litigation. Depending on the court, the search may include details of CCJs, High Court judgments, tribunal awards, small claims and summary causes and default money judgements.
This UK wide civil litigation search covers court cases registered against the individual as a defendant. This register does not include information on claimants. The search covers all of the following:
County Court Judgments are held on the register when the judgment has been issued in default (i.e a judgment without trial where no defence was entered) or else defended and payment is by instalment order, or where enforcement action is being taken.
High Court Judgments are held on the register when the judgment has been issued in default (i.e a judgment without trial where no defence was entered) or else defended and payment is by instalment order, or where enforcement action is being taken.
Tribunal Awards Details of tribunal awards relating to individuals, companies and businesses where action has been taken to enforce the Award.
Administration Orders against a debtor with at least one CCJ registered against who has made an application to the court for an administration order.
