Know the Cost of Enforcing in the High Court

15-02-2018

Point #1 | The Debtor Pays for Successful Enforcement – yes that’s right – the debtor pays the costs of the High Court Enforcement Officer which are set by the Taking Control of Goods (Fees) Regulations 2014.  Where the High Court Enforcement Officer collects it actually costs you, the creditor, nothing to use the service.

 

Point #2 | Invest In Your Enforcement Process – There’s no such thing as a free lunch and enforcing a judgment involves paying additional fees to move to the next step.  So instead of paying the county court bailiffs I want you to consider using the High Court enforcement system which runs parallel to the county court system. 

 

Point #3 | Don’t forget not every judgment can be transferred - Judgments under £600 or those regulated by the Consumer Credit Act legislation cannot be transferred to the High Court for enforcement. Don’t worry we have solutions for collecting judgments of any type or value. The bottom line is we want to increase the odds for enforcing all types of judgments, even if we can’t send them to the High Court, and we have proven ways to do this.   

 

Point #4 | We offer a no-obligation review service for any judgment you want to transfer to the High Court – We don’t want you to waste time and money trying to enforce the unenforceable.  All you have to do is call or email us and we can take a look at the judgment information to guide you on your next steps. 

 

Point #5 | You can instruct us online - You may register with our website at www.shergroup.net/enforcement and then upload your information into our online form on the window TRANSFER YOUR CCJ | INSTRUCT US NOW.

 

Point #6 | A question you may be asking yourself is why transfer to the High Court?  By sourcing the best enforcement agents, and by adding value to our process with our in-house collection system which has been revised and proven over time, we create more successful outcomes for our clients, with payments in full or sensible and acceptable payment plans. 

 

Point #7 | What does the debtor pay? – The debtor pays the cost of enforcement, and where the debtor pays all or some of the debt, the fees of the High Court Enforcement Officer will be added to your judgment.

 

Point #8 | Can a Debtor Avoid Our Fees?

The answer to this is YES.  As we start to transfer the judgment a Notice of Enforcement will be sent to the debtor warning of the consequences of non-payment and encouraging early settlement.

 

Point #9 | Let Us Handle the Negotiations on Payment

I say this because if you don’t, you may not appreciate that the fees we would charge to the debtor end up being payable by you as the creditor, and you don’t want that.

 

Point #10 | So what happens if we can’t enforce payment?

Well in that situation you will be liable to a further fee of £75.00 plus VAT making a total of £90.00 (the only exception is Employment Tribunal or Acas awards sent to us for enforcement). Of course, I say that not every judgment will be paid.  But if we can’t get your money back there will be a good reason, and if we see another route, we will signpost that for you and indeed offer you a solution to go to the next step.  If the likelihood of payment is not there, it could be that it shines a light on how you do business, how you credit check your customers and how you can plug that gap in the future.
