I have paid the debt (and the interest and fees awarded by the court) and this has been recorded by Registers Trust, and my Experian/Equifax credit checks show the inhibition as settled. However this still seems to be doing my credit rating no good at all, and I have been turned down on a remortgage.
Given that I was not even in the country and didn't receive notification that the payment was due, let alone any final demands (I can understand one letter getting lost in the post, but not multiple), and then have also not received anything from the courts, what do you think are my chances of being able to appeal in some way against the inhibition decision and get it wiped out altogether?
To be clear, I don't dispute the debt. However there does seem to be scope for complaint/appeal given the lack of serious attempt by Edinburgh council to obtain payment. I also wonder whether there is any possibility that not receiving court documents might invalidate the action?
