Judgement Enforcement:

High Court Enforcement Agents

Anybody with a County Court Judgment over £600 (unless the judgment arises from an agreement regulated by the Consumer Credit Act) can elect to have it enforced by a High Court Enforcement Agent (HCEA). We’re sure you’ve all seen the various TV shows; and have seen that results can be achieved by persistence and effective use of the High Court Writ of Control.

Unlike County Court Bailiffs, our officers are not salaried and do not work standard office hours. They are paid by results; meaning they will always go the extra mile to ensure you get what is rightfully yours.

HCEA’s are a powerful tool in the enforcement arsenal; a tool that, when used correctly, can have excellent results. There are costs to pay if enforcement fails; but in certain circumstances we are able to offer a “No Result, No Fee” option. If this appeals to you, please give us a call.

How we help

The process is very simple. We will transfer your judgment to the High Court on your behalf, and ask the Court to make a High Court Order. The Court fee is currently £66.

Thereafter, our officers will attend any address within England and Wales to enforce the judgment. If enforcement is successful, the officers’ costs are payable by the Debtor. If enforcement fails, there is an abortive cost. Enforcement will involve our officers “taking control” of goods belonging to the debtor; which may then be removed and sold to pay the debt. When we attend commercial premises, our officers have the power to force entry if required. Often, however, the mere attendance of a High Court Enforcement Agent, or the threat of removal of goods, will be enough to force payment.

If you wish to avoid having to pay the Court fee, and also avoid the risk of any abortive costs should the enforcement fail (which are currently £90); ask us about our “No Win No Fee” service.

High Court Enforcement is also available to anybody who has an unpaid Employment Tribunal Award or an ACAS Settlement Award.

Why choose our officers for Enforcement?

  • the powers available to our officers exceed any County Court Bailiff or “debt collector”
  • we are paid by results; not salaries
  • the police must assist our Officers if requested to do so (The Courts Act 2003, s.99, sch.7, para.5)
  • our officers are highly regarded for their meticulous planning and attention to detail

Commercial Writs of Possession / Traveller Evictions

Our Agents excel in the safe removal of trespassers from illegally occupied land within England & Wales. They will always work in partnership with the local Police, and also have authority to use powers of arrest. This ensures that our officers work within the framework of both British and European Law; yet still deliver a firm and robust solution to your land disputes.

We can deploy substantial resources anywhere in England and Wales; and pride ourselves in effectively responding to even the most challenging of situations.

How we help

A swift assessment of the situation (for risk and operational needs) is firstly carried out, followed by the creation and agreement of an Operational Plan. This plan, subject to your approval, is then implemented with the absolute minimum of delay – resulting in the rapid return of your land to you.

This course of action is available either under a High Court Writ of Possession, or alternatively under Common Law. To discuss your options, and find the right one for you, simply give our team a call.
