What is a CCJ?
You may have a CCJ in light of the fact that you've neglected to make timely repayments on a debt and have been taken to court. In the event that you fails to reimburse the cash owed before a month has passed, the CCJ goes in your credit record.
For six years after it is issued, a CCJ shows up on an open database called the Register of Judgments, Orders and Fines, and also shows up on your credit record. Therefore, during these six years your CCJ is classed as ‘current’ and this will be taken into account by any lender who you approach for a loan, including a mortgage or remortgage.
This means that if you want to get a remortgage during these six years you will probably have the most success if you approach a mortgage provider who specialises in offering remortgages to people with current CCJs.
You can have more than one CCJ on your credit record, and obviously, the more you have, the poorer your chances of getting a good remortgage rate. If you have multiple CCJs against your name it may be advisable to seek expert advice before approaching remortgage providers., in order to maximise your chances of getting a remortgage deal at an acceptable rate.
