If the debtor fails to pay the Judgment debt there are various methods available for attempting to enforce the Judgment in order to secure payment.
We will discuss with you the suitability of each option in a specific case before taking further action but in summary the methods of enforcement are:
Warrant of Control (County Court Bailiffs)/Writ of Control (High Court Enforcement Officers)
Attend at a debtor's home or business premises with a view to removing goods to secure payment of the debt. They usually rely on the threat of removal to attempt to obtain payment.
Attachment of Earnings
Where a debtor is in employment (not self-employed) it is possible to obtain an Order requiring payments to be deducted directly from their salary.
The Judgment can be secured against any property owned by the debtor such as a home or commercial premises.
Third Party Debt Order
Monies due to the debtor by a third party or a bank account can be ordered to be paid directly to you.
An alternative is to consider Insolvency proceedings.
