Good day!

 

A company normally only blacklist a client if the company obtained judgment for outstanding Debt or in the case of the client defaulting on payment.

This I understand, my question is will they have to go to court to get a judgment and serve summons or can they just black list you?
Lawyer: JP, Attorney replied 8 years ago

Hi again!

 

Some companies like the major banks will and can still list you as a bad payer (default) without a court judgment. This listing is however not so detrimental to your credit worthiness status as a formal judgment.

 

If you feel that you have been incorrectly blacklisted or blacklisted unfairly you can lay a complaint at the credit bureau ombudsman /www.creditombud.org.za

May be I am just not understanding Embarassed; you say:

"or in the case of the client defaulting on payment."

Am I to understand that they can blacklist you without the interferance of the courts?

Thanks
Lawyer: JP, Attorney replied 8 years ago

Sorry for any misunderstanding Customer.

 

That is correct they can still blacklist you for non-payment(default) as well.The banks use this default listing between each other to establish if they can grant a loan to you or not but as i said this is not so intense as an actual blacklist for judgment(where they issued summons against you and obtained a court order.)

 

I hope everything is clear now if not feel free to reply im here to assist.Smile
