High Court Enforcement – Solicitors
Our High Court Enforcement Team is experienced, professional and well versed in the process of enforcing High Court Writs. High Court Enforcement Officers (HCEOs) have greater powers than County Court bailiffs. Many solicitors therefore appoint High Court Enforcement Officers because they more effective in recovering outstanding debts from unpaid County Court Judgments (CCJ).
The High Court Enforcement Officers manage all our field Enforcement Agents assigned to each case. Each Enforcement Agent will have good knowledge of their respective local areas, which when pooled together provides national coverage. We have set out below a list of the most common types of High Court Writs available and also other court judgments for High Court Enforcement. These writs enable us to recover your clients money or property .

Common Types of High Court Writs
As High Court Enforcement Officers (HCEOs), we can enforce a number of different types of writs which allow you to recover the following on behalf of your clients:
Writ of Control
The most common High Court Writ which is issued in England and Wales for the recovery of money. This High Court Writ enables the seizure and sale of the judgment debtor’s goods in the event of non-payment, although this action is a last resort and is rarely required.
Writ of Possession
This High Court Writ enables the recovery of land after an order for possession has been obtained. Often used for the eviction of trespassers and squatters from commercial property and land.
Writ of Possession and Control
This combined writ is to enforce for both possession of land and recovery of money at the same time.
Writ of Restitution
Where the land has been re-occupied by the original trespassers or squatters after they had been previously evicted under an execution of a writ of possession, then the Writ of Restitution can be applied.
Writ of Delivery
When requiring either payment or return of supplied goods, a Writ of Delivery can be issued for the recovery of specific assets which can be combined with a money element.
Writ of Assistance
This writ can be used to assist to help with a Writ of Control in special circumstances, as well as a Writ of Possession or Writ of Delivery.
Compliance fee £75 – Whilst in successful recoveries our fees are paid by the debtor there will be occasions when for a variety of reasons we will be unable to recover the amount due. On these occasions your firm will be charged £75.00 plus VAT which is the statutory compliance fee, (formerly known as the abortive fee) . If only part settlement is achieved then our costs will be deducted from the amount recovered on a pro rata basis.
