The court records section provides a summary of any Court Writs or Court Judgments against your applicant over the past five years. This will not show any criminal judgements made against your client.

A Judgement is the decision of a court or tribunal – and generally means that the Court has made an order, without going to trial, that the defendant owes money to a specific business or individual.

Court Writs are a summons that has been issued by the court, ordering that the individual or company appear in court. This generally occurs in situations where the individual or company are summoned by a lender (e.g. bank or financial institution) who is taking legal action to reclaim the debt that they’re owed.
