High Court Enforcement
We provide enforcement solutions for any CCJ or Writ that has a value greater than £600. Our panel of suppliers cover every square inch of England and Wales and will visit each debtor up to 3 times within just 30 days.
Our authority to act
Our High Court Enforcement Officer is authorised by the Lord Chancellor’s office to enforce High Court Writs. He has been authorised since 2004 and as well as being one of a very limited number of authorised officers in the UK. He sits as an Executive Director of the High Court Enforcement Officers Association.
High Court Enforcement Officer Vs County Court bailiff
County Court Bailiffs/Enforcement Agents are employees of the Court. They have limited power and the required resource available to them when compared to High Court Enforcement Officers and that’s why the majority of creditors turn to a High Court Enforcement Officer for the swift resolution of debt.
The cost of using a County Court Bailiff Vs a High Court Enforcement Officer
- The cost of using a County Court Bailiff is between £77 and £100
- The cost of using a High Court Enforcement Officer is £75 + VAT but this in only payable if they are unsuccessful at recovering the debt.
High Court Enforcement Officers are required to pass on VAT for the cost of enforcement, but you will be able to reclaim this as a normal cost of doing business if you are registered.
Our enforcement agents
We do not employ any enforcement agents direct and instead employ a panel of providers that cover every square inch of England and Wales. Our panel members are contracted by us, operate to our strict ISO 9001 guidelines and use our single digital infrastructure to ensure consistency and compliance.
