Home insurance with a CCJ

If you’ve had a CCJ made against you, some insurance providers won’t give you a quote. We will.

What is a county court judgement?

A county court judgement (CCJ) is a UK court order that can be lodged against you if you fail to repay owed money. It will often determine whether you must repay your creditors in monthly instalments or in full immediately. If you fail to keep to the terms of a CCJ then the court can enforce the debt by sending bailiffs to your home, having your employer deduct your wages, or by securing a Charging Order to your property.

Insurance for your belongings

  • Basic Legal Expenses cover included.
  • 24/7 Claims hotline.
  • Alternative accommodation.
  • New for old contents cover.

County Court Judgements are usually issued to someone who has been unable to pay back a debt on time. If this has happened to you, or someone in your family this can make it much harder to get home insurance. It’s best to be honest; you must tell your insurer about the CCJ so that the insurance will be there to help you if you need to make a claim.

The HomeProtect policy has been rated 5 Star by Defaqto, meaning that it provides excellent levels of cover for both Buildings and Contents insurance. Buying a Defaqto 5 Star policy means that you can relax, knowing that if anything untoward happen to your building or your belongings that we’ll be here to help pick up the pieces.
