Will Cabot Financial take me to court?
If you ignore their messages and don’t agree to repay your debt, then yes they may take you to court to recover your debt account.
Cabot Financial may apply for a County Court Judgment (CCJ) to force you to legally recognise your debt and to agree on a payment method. Unless you pay the CCJ within the 30-day deadline, it will remain on your credit file for the next six years, and negatively affect your credit rating.
Cabot Financial may ask the court for a charging order, which secures your debt against your property. In the most severe cases, they could then apply for an ‘order for sale’ to force you to sell the property so they can reclaim your debt.

Can Cabot Financial send bailiffs to my house?
Yes. Following court action, they can send an agent or bailiff to your door to discuss how you will repay your debt. You should receive notice of their visit.
We recommend that:
- You ask to see their ID
