Check Equifax as well - they sometimes show things that are not on Experian. You need to forward proof that you have paid the CCJ to Experian so that they can amend their records.
With regard to your other debts - it depends what they were. Late payments on cards etc will show as no. of months paid late -ie. 0 is paid on time, 1 is 1 month late, 2, 2 months etc. Other debts will only show if they went to court, otherwise there won't be any record. hth

There is another agency called Equifax. It should hold the same details, but it's probably worth checking. When you say debts, do you mean loans and cards, or arrears? Repaid loans and cards won't appear unless you fell behind with repayments. Arrears may not always appear on your file, it depends on the repayment arrangment you had with the company you owed the money to. I think with most companies you have to be in arrears for a couple of months for it to show up on your file. HTH
