My name isXXXXX and I am a Solicitor based in London. I'm happy to help with your question today.

There is a time limit under the Limitations Act 1980.

The time limit is 6 years from the date of breach or default to commence court proceedings.

Once 6 years has passed from the date of the breach then proceedings are time barred although in principle the debt is still owed.

Also the default or account is removed from your credit file after the 6 year period has passed.
