Enforcement of Judgments

Obtaining a Judgment is just the first step of recovering the sums owed to the benefiting party.

A Court will not automatically enforce the Judgment; it will require the Claimant or the party with the benefit of the Judgment to take the necessary steps to enforce it. 

Under the Civil Procedure Rules there are various options available and most of our clients find it helpful to discuss the pros and cons of each option with us prior to settling on a given course.  The enforcement options include:

  1. County Court Bailiffs;
  2. High Court Enforcement Officers;
  3. Third Party Debt Orders;
  4. Charging Orders (including Orders for Sale);
  5. Attachment of earnings;
  6. Insolvency proceedings (bankruptcy and company liquidation); and
  7. Recovery from mortgage lenders
  8. Forfeiture proceedings

Using the information provided to us by our clients and information we are able to obtain from other sources  we  can assess the defaulting party’s positon and provide advice on the best method of enforcement available. This often results in our clients  obtaining the sums owed to them at no cost to themselves.
