Residential Evictions

Introducing Court Enforcement Services Limited – Speeding up residential evictions by transferring up to the High Court for Enforcement

Court Enforcement Services Limited is the largest and market-leading High Court Enforcement Company.

We are a leading provider of property enforcement services including a highly successful residential eviction service.

We have managed thousands of evictions recovering residential properties for landlords through High Court Enforcement and have a 100% success rate. Our team of 150 Enforcement Agents cover every postcode across England & Wales.

Due to the significant backlog of cases waiting for eviction dates from the County Court Bailiff Service, we recommend transferring up to the High Court for enforcement by our High Court Enforcement Officers to secure a speedier eviction to recover your property much sooner and to minimise your losses in terms of accumulating unpaid rent and damage to property.

Repossession of residential property

We act for many residential landlords, their managing agents and estate agents, assisting them to take back possession of their residential properties where an eviction is required.

Whether there is outstanding rent, or you require the tenant to vacate your property for another reason, we can assist you in enforcing any order made by the court for possession or guide you through the process and steps required prior to taking any enforcement action.

As a residential landlord wishing to repossess your property, your first steps are to serve notice upon the tenant and then obtain an order for possession from the court. Although this can often be straightforward it can also be complex so we would recommend seeking legal advice and support in dealing with such matters as the law is continually changing.

On receipt of your instructions, we will act quickly to execute a writ of possession to ensure the property is returned to you as soon as possible.

“I wanted to confirm that I was very impressed with the service that you and your team have provided in what has been a very difficult and long-running case. Your colleague Jon Tatam thought of every eventuality and covered every aspect for what could have been a very challenging day. Thankfully, it went ahead smoothly. However, had it not done so he would have been very much in control and had every angle covered. I would have no hesitation in recommending your services or indeed using them again.”

“Fantastic service – a fast, highly professional & cost-effective enforcement service. I have finally got possession of my property after years of trying to evict a difficult tenant. Great service from the development manager, Irvine, and Ashleigh in the office, who helped with every step of the process, including arranging for the locksmith to attend. Georgie the enforcement officer was brilliant – he worked calmly & professionally with the tenant and kept me fully informed during the whole eviction process on the day. I will be using them again to pursue the rent arrears and highly recommend their services.”
