Unfortunately the outstanding amount is still owed.

When they obtained the CCJ that was just one level or enforcement.
They then obtained the Charge that was only possible because of the CCJ, and was an additional level of enforcement.

Now the Charge has gone, it means the CCJ remains, as the Charge was based on the CCJ and not the other way around (and could not be).

This means that the owner of the CCJ (which from what you have said is Drydens) can still go for the remaining balance.

As you situation is that you are unemployed and the fact Drydens lifted the Charge to prevent repossession by allowing the say, it would be prudent to talk to them and find out if they will take a very low monthly offer (maybe £1 - £5 a month) for the time being. You could also cheekily ask if they would consider writing the debt off (it does happen!)

Also on a very serious side note, if you have other debts as well, then I would suggest contacting one the following who can offer free and confidential help
