We have heard of cases where the courts have given different advice on how to apply for a stay of execution. If you request a stay of execution and the court tells you to follow a procedure other than that described in this fact sheet, contact us for advice. If an HCEO takes control of protected goods, you can file a legal claim for the return of the goods. Contact us for a consultation. If you have a County Court Judgment (CCJ) over £600* that is under 6 years old and you want to quickly get the money back due, why not take advantage of our fast and free transfer service from the CCJ to High Court Enforcement? * £600 = total amount of judgment due, including court costs and interest. If the court agrees to a stay of execution, you must write the order yourself, send it to the court to be stamped or stamped, and then serve it on the creditor. It is also a good idea to send a copy to the Enforcement Officer of the High Court. If you have a decision or order from the Supreme Court, you can apply for a review action using Form PF86A with the £71 court fee for the claim statement. At the Sheriff`s Office, we handle the process on your behalf for free. Once the first month has passed, nothing can be done to avoid the 6-year registration period.
The CCJ is deemed satisfied by the courts and will have future credit implications that a debtor will not realize unless they want to take out a loan or buy a property. So it`s great if the negotiations between you and your debtor are going on during this month and if not, talk to Shergroup for enforcement. If you have an unpaid judgment or District Court order of more than £600 less than 6 years old and want to quickly recover the money owed, Shergroup can help. Our CCJ Referral and Enforcement Service will help you recover your money, including court costs and interest. A court fee of £71.00 is payable. This is in addition to the amount due by the debtor and recovered after successful enforcement. We offer the transfer service free of charge. A County Court Judgment (CCJ) is a type of court order in England, Wales, that can be filed against you if you do not repay the money you owe. A CCJ is also known as County Court Summons. A CCJ against a person is placed on the court file as soon as it is issued.
Thus, the debtor has exactly one month to withdraw the CCJ, or he remains in the files. Make three copies of the N244 and send them (via first class recommended delivery) or bring them to court with your affidavit or testimony and fees. If you believe that an HCJ should not have been issued or was wrongly issued, you can challenge the judgment by contacting the issuing court directly. They will then be able to advise them on their dispute resolution procedure. You have an unpaid judgment of the District Court against a debtor. You went to court and successfully received your verdict in the district court. But your debtor ignored the court order and didn`t pay your money. The court wants you to make sure that this is enforced. What`s next? If your Supreme Court decision exceeds £5,000, the application can be made to the High Court or County Court. A request for a load order is a two-step process. If you object in time, there must be a hearing before a judge before it becomes final. A final charge order doesn`t mean you`ll lose your home.
Another application must be made to ask the court to order the sale of your home. In the case of debts owed by a limited liability company, you can file a liquidation application with the courts to close the company. In the case of a solvent company, the board of directors will want to avoid this at all costs, including the cost of final repayment of its debts to you. If a creditor wishes to use a control order to enforce a judgment of the CCJ or the High Court, it is automatically issued by the High Court, unless six years or more have elapsed since the date of the judgment. If six or more years have elapsed since the judgment was pronounced, the court`s approval is required before the application can be issued. A control decision is valid for 12 months and can be extended by the creditor. If you have a loan agreement governed by the Consumer Credit Act 1974, your lender must bring an action against you in a district court. You cannot apply to enforce the District Court`s judgment in the High Court. The High Court will most likely be used by creditors for claims over £100,000 for debts not governed by the Consumer Credit Act 1974. You can apply to the courts for a seizure order if you are dealing with someone employed by a company. This means that their company deducts a certain amount from their salary on a monthly or weekly basis until the debts are settled.
In England and Wales, creditors can make a monetary claim that you owe through the County Court or the High Court. Most creditors will take action against you in district court. You may be familiar with the procedure in the district court, perhaps by reading our self-help kit or because creditors have already filed a lawsuit against you. We will also pay you or your organization promptly as soon as we have recovered some or all of the outstanding claim. Our company handles the execution of the High Court for individual cases and high-volume investigations – we handle each case with the utmost care and attention on your behalf.

Even if you have signed a domination agreement, you can ask the court for a «stay of execution». The court may be less willing to accept this if you have done so. There is a court fee of £71 to obtain the control order, which will be claimed from the debtor if enforcement is successful.
The sheriff`s office does NOT charge a fee for obtaining the injunction on your behalf. If a pecuniary judgment has been rendered by the High Court, the creditor can ask the court to charge «fees» on your house. This «secures» the debt like a mortgage so that it is repaid when the house is sold. Most creditors are willing to wait for you to sell your home until a certain point in the future and get paid from the proceeds of the sale. When a creditor files an application for a sales order, a hearing is scheduled and the court has the final decision on whether or not to grant the order. You can find more information in our factsheet on loading orders. If an indictment order has been made by the High Court for a High Court judgment, the court does not have the power to accept terms like those of the county court, such as: consent that the creditor cannot apply for a purchase order until your youngest child is under the age of 18. The court will not always accept the suspension of execution. Be sure to provide all the details the court needs to understand your situation, including: If you fail to reach an agreement to repay the debt in installments, you can use court form N244 to contact the court to stop the HCOs.
This is called «suspension of execution.» The negative impact of a judgment on your credit report comes from the marker itself, not the outstanding balance. Indeed, the fact that an applicant had to resort to legal action to recover the funds due is considered by lenders as an important red flag, which shows a significant risk that they want to avoid. Since lenders tend to prefer low-risk customers, it can be more difficult and expensive for you to take out a mortgage while having an HCJ against your name. A third-party debt order is an unusual procedure and involves a court order to freeze the account and a hearing before the district judge. If your creditor threatens to apply for a debt order from a third party, contact us for advice. Before taking enforcement action, a creditor may ask you to go to court to conduct an interview about your income, expenses, and any assets you have, such as your home. This is called an «information gathering order» or an information order. This process is the same as in the county court. This can happen at any time and not just if you miss a payment. The interview consists of a series of standard questions and you may be asked to bring things like your pay slips and loan agreements to the interview. The creditor must pay a fee to the High Court for applications for enforcement of a judgment. The creditor will add the fees to your debts and, in some cases, there may be additional legal fees that they can also add.
Our certified agents are highly experienced and take each case compliant to ensure that your money is confiscated. When enforcing judgments of the county courts, the enforcement agents of the High Court (HCO) have a much higher recovery rate than the judicial officers of the county courts. If you need to recover property or land or evict squatters via a property notice, a court fee of £71 will be charged to obtain the writ. If an HCEO takes goods from a third party, the third party must write to the HCEO to prove that it owns the goods. The HCEO should transmit this information to the creditor. The creditor would then have to decide whether to accept or reject the third party`s claim. If the creditor refuses, the third party may ask the court to recover the goods. However, you must pay a deposit to the court.
