High Court Enforcement.

Our High Court Enforcement Team is experienced, professional and well versed in the process of enforcing High Court Writs.

High Court Enforcement Officers (HCEO’s) are authorised by the Lord Chancellor to enforce High Court Writs.

HCEO’s have greater powers than County Court bailiffs and are therefore more effective in recovering outstanding debts under unpaid County Court Judgments (CCJ’s).

HCEO’s manage our field Enforcement Agents assigned to each case. Each Enforcement Agent has a good knowledge of their local area, which, when combined, provides national coverage.

High Court Enforcement to Recover Your Money and Property

Money – You can recover outstanding debts owed to you by instructing us to enforce a Writ of Control. If you have an outstanding County Court judgment (CCJ), we offer a free service to transfer up to the High Court for enforcement.

Property – Instruct us to enforce a Writ of Possession, to enforce a County Court Possession Order or to remove persons unknown from commercial property or unauthorised trespassers on your land.

Transfer up of CCJs to High Court Enforcement

We can provide our free transfer up service if your judgement is:

  • above £600 (inclusive of court fees and interest)
  • less than 6 years old

As High Court Enforcement Officers (HCEO’s), we can enforce several different types of writs. These cover the collection of outstanding funds, possession of land or property and the return of goods.

If you require any assistance or advice, our team are always on hand to guide and support you through the process.

Below is a list of the most common types of writs available and their purposes:

Writ of Control

The most common High Court Writ is a Writ of Control, which, is issued in England and Wales for the recovery of money due under unpaid County Court or High Court judgments.

Such a writ enables our agents to take control of the judgment debtor’s goods if payment is not made.

In the event of non-payment, a judgment debtor’s goods may be removed for sale and sold at public auction although such action is only taken as a last resort and is rarely required.

Writ of Possession

A Writ of Possession enables the recovery of land or property after an Order for Possession has been obtained from the Court.

This process is often used by residential landlords to reclaim their property and for the eviction of trespassers, squatters, or persons unknown from commercial land and property.

For further information or to instruct us email bd@courtenforcementservices.co.uk or call 0343 504 1606.

Combined Writ of Possession and Control

A combined Writ of Possession and Control is to enforce for both possession of land or property and for the recovery of money at the same time. This is often used by residential landlords who are looking to evict a tenant but to also recover any money judgment obtained for unpaid rent and associated costs.

Writ of Restitution

Where land or property has been re-occupied by the original trespassers, squatters, or persons unknown after they had been previously evicted under the execution of a Writ of Possession, a Writ of Restitution is used to remove them.

Writ of Delivery

A Writ of Delivery is used for the recovery of specific assets or goods based on a court order for the delivery up of the items.

Writ of Assistance

A Writ of Assistance is usually used to assist us with the enforcement of a Writ of Possession in special circumstances but can also apply to a Writ of Control or a Writ of Delivery.
