County Court possession orders can be enforced by Enforcement Agents by transferring to a High Court Writ. This allows attendance at the property or land to take back possession from the defendants – normally listed as Persons Unknown.
An interim possession order cannot be enforced by Enforcement Agents. Action can only be taken by the Police if they are willing to be involved.
What is needed to transfer up the order or judgment
To start the transfer up process you will need the following;
- The judgment or order that details the land or property that is to be recovered
- 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 of the enforcement date.
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.
Keeping you up to date
Throughout the entire case you will be provided timely updates as it progresses. Where significant events occur, the team will be in touch with you to discuss them and provide further information
