Who is the Plaintiff?
The Plaintiff is the individual or organisation who have taken a money judgment or judgment out against you.
They may act for themselves in the case or they may instruct a solicitor to start court action on their behalf.
How do I find out who the Plaintiff is?
You will need to contact the Guernsey Petty Debts or Royal Courts that issued your judgment and quote them the case number. They will be able to give you contact information for the Plaintiff so that you can find out more information and pay them.
If you unaware of the case number, you can do a search on TrustOnline.
I’ve paid the Plaintiff…now what?
If you’ve paid the Plaintiff, you will need to ask them to provide you with proof of payment so that our register can be updated.
We require a letter from the Plaintiff on letterheaded paper (where possible) which states the:
• Court Name
• Date Paid in Full
Your original proof of payment can be sent by post to:
Registry Trust Ltd
153-157 Cleveland Street
Including a return address for us to send confirmation back to.
Or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
For a search of our register confirming the judgment has been updated, you will need to submit a cheque for £6 made payable to Registry Trust Ltd, for each named person or business at a specified address.
Alternatively, electronic payments can be made to:
Lloyds Bank Plc.
Account Name: Registry Trust Ltd
Account Number: 00436189
Sort Code: 309368
Please ensure that your case number and the defendant name has been noted on the electronic transfer.
We may need to contact the Plaintiff on your behalf if the proof of payment is insufficient.
My Plaintiff has refused to provide proof of payment – what can I do?
Plaintiffs are under no legal obligation to provide proof of payment once payment has been made.
However, if you provide us with what evidence you have that the debt has been paid, we will attempt to contact the Plaintiff on your behalf.
If we do not receive a response after 28 days, the register may be updated at a manager’s discretion based on the evidence you have provided.
