County court judgments (CCJs) can be enforced through certificated Enforcement Agents under the authority of an Authorised High Court Enforcement Officer. The judgment, including court fees and interest must be a minimum of £600.00, must be no more than 6 years old and not issued under the consumer credit act 1974.
All High Court Writs are under the authority of Morgan Sheldon.
What is needed to transfer up a CCJ?
To start the transfer up process you will need the following;
- The judgment or order (CCJ) that states the amount of money you have been awarded
- A copy of your claim form
- A payment of £66.00 (court fee)
How to instruct us
Complete the form here, upload the necessary documents and make the payment of £66.00.
Once these have been received our transfer up team will start the process on your behalf.
What happens next
The team will start working on your case immediately it is received. They will prepare the necessary paperwork for the transfer up to the High Court. It is necessary to confirm the details of the judgment with the issuing court. How swift this is handled will depend on each individual court, the timescale of this is out of our hands.
As soon as we are possession of the High Court Writ you will be notified, and the Compliance stage will commence.
As set out in the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007 every debtor must be notified that enforcement action could take place. Legislation states that a Notice of Enforcement (Compliance letter) is sent to the debtor notifying them of.
- The value of the debt
- Costs and interest
- Sufficient details of the debt including the claimant and court reference numbers
- How to make payment
- The date and time the payment must be made by to prevent enforcement action
- Costs of further enforcement action
- Details of debt support agencies and charities
The letter must give a minimum of 7 clear days, not including Sundays and bank holidays, before an Enforcement Agent can take control of the debtor’s goods.
All notices of enforcement are sent via Royal Mail with a proof of postage obtained and kept on file
Where payment of the debt is not made an Enforcement Agent will attend any relevant address in England or Wales to take control of the debtors’ goods. Depending on the circumstances the Enforcement Agent may remove the goods to sell or may come to an agreement with the debtor to pay instalments through a structured Controlled Goods Agreement (CGA).
Should this agreement be breached the debtor will incur additional costs and the Enforcement Agent can return to remove the controlled goods.
