Satisfying a Jersey Judgment
If you have a Jersey judgment registered against you, you will need to pay the judgment in full in order to have this showing as satisfied.
If the judgment is not paid this will remain outstanding for six years from the date of the judgment – we do not currently hold partial settlement information.
If the Judgment has been paid
If the judgment is paid within a calendar month from the date of the judgment, and proof of payment is provided to Registry Trust, we will remove the judgment from our public Register and notify the credit reference agencies to remove it from their files.
If the judgment is paid after a calendar month from the date of judgment, you can apply to have the judgment marked as satisfied, provided you send in your proof of payment to Registry Trust.
We require a receipt of an original letter from the Plaintiff on letter headed paper (where possible) which states the:
• Names and address of the defendant the judgment was recorded against
• Court Name
• Amount of Judgment
• 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 date of judgment 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.
Judgments marked as satisfied will remain on the public Register for six years from the date of the Judgment, however marking a Judgment as satisfied may improve your ability to obtain credit.
The Register only shows the original amount of any judgment issued by the Royal Court (normally over £10,000) or the Petty Debts Court (up to £10,000) and cannot be updated when part payments are made. Details of the Plaintiff are available to the defendant direct from the relevant court.
The Petty Debt Court and Royal Court in Jersey do not have the facility to add a date of birth to a judgment, therefore every judgment the court sends over to us will not contain such details.
