Common examples of this are parking tickets and bills from utility companies, mobile phone companies and debt-collection agencies. If you’ve discovered a CCJ that went to a former address, Lender & Court can assist you in establishing the necessary legal grounds and help with the often difficult court process. Lender & Court is licensed by The Bar Standards Board to instruct barristers.
