Can Cabot Financial take me to court?

The short answer to this question is yes, any creditor can take you to court if you owe them money but there are strict legal processes in place which they must follow before it would ever get to that stage.

Initially, they are required to send you a warning letter, typically in the form of a default notice, to inform you of their intention to take legal action. It is crucial to take prompt action upon receiving a default notice to prevent the situation from escalating. A default can harm your credit score.

Once a default notice has been issued, and only after that, can a creditor serve you with a claim form. Subsequently, a County Court Judgment (CCJ) may be issued against you, which will remain on your credit report for a duration of seven years.

We would always recommend getting in touch with the creditor before it gets to this stage to see if you can deal with things before they escalate any further. We can help you deal with this process and we can discuss which debt solutions can offer legal protection which will stop legal proceedings if they are not already too far gone. The key part of this process is speaking with us as soon as possible to see what options you have.
