The Process Of High Court Enforcement In Kent
Writ Of Control (Money Order)
The High Court Enforcement process in Kent begins with an enforcement agent establishing the identity of the defendant and will then begin seizing goods that belong to them. Requests will be made as part of the High Court Enforcement process for the defendant to complete the payment of the sums due under the writ.
Should the defendant be in a position that they cannot pay the full balance a partial payment may be offered. Goods that are seized are only generally removed if payment is refused, the defendant cannot pay or that the enforcement agent feels that the goods are likely to be removed or could be at risk.
This form of High Court Enforcement in Kent ensures emptying a property. An enforcement officer will attend the property in Kent (with a locksmith if necessary) and will ask any persons present to leave the property in Kent. Once all persons have left the property the agent will conduct a thorough search of the property to verify that the property is clear of ALL persons. Only once the agent is satisfied that it is empty will they then hand the property over to the High Court Enforcement client (or their pre-approved agent).
How Long Does Enforcement Take?
The main focus of High Court Enforcement is the settlement between our client and the defendant. Once you have the possession or money order and the permission to transfer to the High Court we can have the writ drawn up for you and sealed. This can take between 24 and 72 hours including enforcement.
Warrant of Control
In most cases fees incurred are paid for by the defendant. This is in line with the Tribunals Court and Enforcement Act 2007. Under these regulations, we can charge fees in addition to the judgement debt. These fees are only relevant where we are successful in enforcing the judgement.
There is a payment which is payable for this service – you will find that our rates are very competitive. Please contact our client services today on 0844 561 1250 to begin discussing our High Court Enforcement in Kent.
