I have a familiar problem with a tenant owing rent, and we have taken out a CCJ against them. He is still in the limbo period where he has a chance to pay but we’re not holding out much hope as he is a tricky customer. He is personally responsible for the debt, it is not a ltd company debt.
We know that he is active in his community, and is also a director of one other company (not one that owes us the money) and is also a director of a local community group. These details were obtained from Companies House.
So here’s the question. In order to nudge him into paying, are we allowed to inform his company, and his community group, that he has a CCJ against him?
The reason being is that we would like to tell the debtor that we will be forced to inform these various parties, as well as his bank (we have his details). As he is a local community person, we would do this to get him to pay up as he would most likely be embarrassed if we informed these various groups that he has a CCJ against him.
The question is: are we actually allowed to inform people that he has a CCJ against him or is that a breach of privacy or something like that?
Any help/advice would be gratefully received. I’ve looked everywhere for guidance and none of it is really relevant to this specific situation. I can imagine that being able to inform people of a CCJ, and the threat of embarrassment, loss of standing etc would be a useful tool in the armoury in order to get a tenant to pay up!
Thanks in advance,
