How to Easily Deal With HMCTS Historic Debt Team

A court fine is a penalty given to you by the court when you are charged with a criminal offense. In some instances, it’s possible that the court sent the notification to the wrong address or you might have received it but you opted to not pay at the time. Due to the huge number of court fines not being paid, the HMCTS Historic Debt Team was created by the UK Government in 2016 to chase after these unpaid court fines.

Dealing with debt-chasers such as HMCTS Historic Debt Team can be highly exhausting as fines can be classified as an unwanted expense. If you are already scrimping on the little money you have, paying fines is mostly the least of your priorities.

Unfortunately, you need to pay your court fines on time to avoid being harassed by the debt collectors or suffer serious consequences like imprisonment. Consider using DoNotPay, as it is an efficient, fast, and hassle-free way to negotiate and work-out a favourable payment plan with the HMCTS Historic Debt Team.

Understanding HMCTS Historic Debt Team

The HMCTS Historic Debt Team is tasked to locate people with overdue court fines and make them pay. HMCTS will contact you using a debt letter and you must respond to avoid dealing with enforcement agents such as Marston Holdings.

If you choose to ignore communication from HMCTS, your debt could be passed over to an enforcement agency and you will have to pay additional costs for the enforcement services when setting the original court fine.

Some scammers wish to collect free money. For this, do some research or contact the National Enforcement Service when you have concerns about the debt letter or text messages you have received. You can also call 0300 123 9252 or use the contact information attached to your letter when verifying your debt details from the Historic Debt Team.

Your court fines cannot be written off, statute-barred, or included in a bankruptcy order, so you have to pay them eventually. You can pay the penalties in full or make a payment arrangement. The HMCTS Historic Debt Team offers you debt help if your court debt fines have not been passed on to an enforcement agency.

You can pay your court fine online or over the phone, following the guidelines on your debt letter. If your debt is handed over to the enforcement service, contact the collection officer for payment methods. You can also request debt help from HMCTS Historic Debt Team, whereby they provide you with various payment options.

These debts help options include:

Paying in instalmentsYou can request the Historic Debt Team to collect the outstanding court fine debts in monthly instalments or request more time to pay. This request is made verbally or in writing.
Deductions from your earningsYou request HMCTS Historic Debt Team to collect your court fine debt from your earnings by filling in a means inquiry form. You have to provide a signed statement of earnings, which lays out your correct financial information.
Deductions from your benefitsYou can also request the Historic Debt Team agent to collect the court fine debt from your benefits. They can deduct from your pension credit, employment and support allowance, or income support.

Getting debt help yourself is expensive, difficult, and frustrating. You have to spend more on a debt adviser to get help through the hard debt help application process. Historic Debt Team debt help can also be unsuccessful when you fail to keep up with the court fines payment. Avoid going through the difficult process yourself by using DoNotPay.
