Optional Enforcement

Video length: 1m 21s

There are a number of optional enforcement actions that our debt recovery team offers, which do not fall within our 'no recovery no fee service,' rather they are charged in accordance with our debt collection fixed fees.

Charging Order

This is an application to place a charge on the Debtor's property. If an order is made this will be registered with the Land Registry and the property cannot be sold without you being paid. Once an order is made, depending on the value of the debt, an application for an order for sale can be made.

Attachment of Earnings

This is an application for an order that a proportion of the debtor's earnings are deducted from their wages by their employer and paid to you until the debt is paid in full.

Third Party Debt Order

This is an application for an order that monies belonging to a judgment debtor that are in the hands of a third party, usually a bank are frozen and seized to cover the judgment awarded on your behalf.

Order to Obtain Information

This is an application for an order that the debtor attends court to provide information. The order may require the judgment debtor to attend court or if the judgment debtor is a company or other corporation an officer of that body. This information can then be used to enforce the judgment obtained for your benefit. The debtor may be questioned about their means, assets, employer, bank account details etc. The questions are to be answered by the debtor under oath.
