County Court Money Claims Centre (CCMCC) Who? What? Where? When? Why?

So many questions, so little time to ask them…

…especially when you’re trying to get your money back.

With that in mind, here is the TeamCES summary of what a CCMCC actually is, what it does and how or why you might need to use one.

Supposing you live in England or Wales, the County Court Money Claims Centre will usually deal with any applications made to the Small Claims Court over money that is owed to an individual or a business.

It wasn’t always this way, but since 2012, the CCMCC (based in Salford) has acted as the administrative centre for dealing with applications and other early stage judgments and acknowledgements.

When this is enough, it’s happy days all round and you can get back to work, but when the CCMCC isn’t sufficient for achieving success with your claim, what do you do?

When a debtor refutes the claim, refuses to pay, or suggests a payment solution that isn’t to your satisfaction, the CCMCC will allocate the case to County Court. This will usually be at a location convenient to either the claimant or the debtor, and assuming the claim is worth less than £10,000, the mediation service will be offered to begin with.

The CCMCC isn’t just a middle man though, as it is also responsible for issuing warrants of execution, which gives the county court bailiffs the right to pursue the debtor.

Court Enforcement Specialists offer help and advice on all of the above, as well as the capability to escalate the claim to the High Court.

In a potentially confusing process, our clients trust us to clear the water and make sense of it all, so that they can get their money back and get back to work.
