If a debtor has paid the money judgments obtained by several judgment creditors, how can the debtor get these judgments marked as satisfied and do they need the actual judgments to do so?

In responding to this Q&A, we have assumed the reference is to judgments that have been entered into the register of judgments, administration orders, fines and tribunal decisions.

The register of judgments, administration orders, fines and tribunal decisions

Any of the following judgments (subject to some exceptions) must be registered in the Register of Judgments, Orders and Fines:

  1. High Court judgments

  2. County Court judgments

  3. County Court administration orders and orders to restrict them

  4. magistrates’ court fines

  5. every tribunal decision or award made by the First-tier Tribunal, the Upper Tribunal, an employment tribunal, or the Employment Appeal Tribunal in pursuance of which a sum of money is payable
