What does it cost?
Obtaining a judgment or order may have already set you back a fair amount, so you will be relieved to hear that enforcement costs very little.
Enforcement of a CCJ
To enforce your County Court Judgment (CCJ), it will need to be transferred to the High Court for enforcement. There is a court fee for the transfer up to obtain the writ of control.
The transfer up fee is added to the amount to be recovered from your debtor, so you will get this money back if enforcement is successful.
The Sheriffs Office will manage the transfer up on your behalf - there is NO charge for this service.
If enforcement is not successful - perhaps there may be no assets, the debtor is insolvent or cannot be located - then all you pay is a compliance fee plus VAT.
Enforcement of a High Court Judgment
There is a court fee to obtain the writ of control, which will be recovered from the debtor if enforcement is successful. The Sheriffs Office makes NO charge for obtaining the writ on your behalf.
If enforcement is not successful - perhaps there may be no assets, the debtor is insolvent or cannot be located - then all you pay is a compliance fee of £75 plus VAT.
Writ of possession
If you need to recover property or land or evict squatters via a writ of possession, there is a £71 court fee to obtain the writ.
