The Registry Trust has halved the cost of checking CCJs (county count judgments). From September 28 the price of a search of a single register fell from £8 to £4. The price of checking two registers has gone down to £8 and the charge for checking all the registers fell from £30 to £10.
The registers are open to the public and maintained by the Trust. There are many reasons for searching the register but often it is in order to check on a potential tradesman or business partner. The judgment record is a strong and simple indicator of financial status and trustworthiness.
