Depending on the amount of business in the particular county court where you entered judgment, it can be as little as 3 working days, or sometimes it can be longer. Unfortunately, we don’t have any control over this except we do follow up with the court until we get back the necessary paperwork.




When do you remove goods in your enforcement process?


Removing goods is rare and is expensive so we try to minimize the need to remove goods in all our attendances.




How long do I have to wait to receive monies from your process?


We hold funds for 28 days which includes a statutory period of 14 days to hold funds so that they cannot be used in any insolvency process by the Judgment Debtor.




What happens if a third party claims the goods at the address on the Writ?


A process is in place for claims by third parties to be reviewed by the Court. It is dealt with under CPR Part 85 (Claims to Controlled Goods by Third Parties).

In the majority of cases we divide the part payments on a 65/35 ratio in favour of the creditor under the Writ

If goods are removed, then the normal course is to sell them at public auction through one of Shergroup’s panel auction houses. But we do offer our channels to sell goods depending on each situation.

If any proceeds are left after the sums due under the Writ of Control have been paid, then these will be returned to the Judgment Debtor, assuming of course there are no subsequent Writs with Shergroup for enforcement.




Can you help find a new address for a Judgment Debtor?


Yes, we can. Shergroup Investigations can help you locate a new address or verify an address from your own tracing agent. We offer various levels of service to give you the entire spectrum of service.




If the Judgment Debtor wants to deal with me directly and make a payment is this OK? Who will pay your fees?


We would always want you to talk to your personal Business Solutions Advisor before accepting any settlement from a Judgment Debtor who is subject to a Writ of Control.

This is what used to be referred to as the “abortive fee” which reflects the fact that the HCEO could not enforce the Writ. A client will have already paid for this in the fixed fee of £156 so we do not charge it again.

If you are a non-corporate customer there will be no further fee to pay as you will have covered the statutory compliance fee in your initial investment of £156.00.




What is the compliance fee?


This is what used to be referred to as the “abortive fee” which reflects the fact that the HCEO could not enforce the Writ. A client will have already paid for this in the fixed fee of £156 so we do not charge it again.




Does a vehicle have to be immobilised before you can remove it?


Yes, the Taking Control of Goods Regulations stipulate how our Enforcement Agents must secure, immobilise and eventually remove a vehicle.




At which stage do charge your statutory fees?


The fees due under the Writ of Control cover 4 clear stages. Depending on when the Writ is paid, or a payment plan is agreed, the fees will become due.




What happens if Shergroup Enforcement only recovers part of the judgment?


Where we only recover a partial payment to settle the Writ of Control, the amount paid is divided between the Judgment Creditor and Shergroup Enforcement on a 65/35 basis.




What is a Notice of Enforcement?


A Notice of Enforcement is designed to give the Judgment Debtor an opportunity to pay the amount due under the Writ of Control before the Enforcement Agent attends the address.




How much notice will be given to a Judgment Debtor about the date of proposed sale of any goods taken into legal control?


We will give the statutory 7 clear days’ notice of any sale.




How long does a Writ of Control last?


A Writ of Control lasts for 12 months from the date it is sealed by the High Court.

If the Judgment Debtor wants to deal with me directly and make a payment is this OK? Who will pay your fees?


We would always want you to talk to your personal Business Solutions Advisor before accepting any settlement from a Judgment Debtor who is subject to a Writ of Control.




Will an application to set aside judgment prevent you enforcing the Writ of Control?


If you are served with an application, in fact any application, and a Writ of Control has been issued, we ask that you send it to you, so we can review the entire position.




How soon will a Shergroup Enforcement Agent attend the address as directed?


After the time allowed for the Notice of Enforcement has passed, which is 7 clear days, we will allocate a local Enforcement Agent and manage the attendance so the address is attended and a report of that attendance is prepared for you.
