OUR LEGAL FEES AND DISBURSEMENTS
Debt recovery – stage 4 – Enforcement
Once judgment has been entered against a debtor/defendant, the judgment may be enforced in a
number of ways permitted by the court. Means of enforcement include:
- Attachment of Earnings Order (if defendant is employed)
- Third Party Debt Order - where funds owed to the defendant by a third party are paid
to you rather than the defendant.
- Charging Order – if the defendant owns land or shares. This enables the debt to become “secured”
- Warrant of Control (bailiff enforcement)
- Court Attendance Order – this requires the defendant to attend court to answer questions
as to his finances, assets and liabilities. This might produce information to consider
how best to seek to enforce a judgment order.
- Statutory Demand with a view to winding up a corporate debtor or making an individual debtor bankrupt.
Additional court fees are payable in respect of all enforcement proceedings.
We will discuss with you at this stage enforcement options, the relevant additional court fees
payable and we will at that time also discuss and agree enforcement legal fees to be paid to this firm.
Generally, further court fees incurred are added to the judgment debt payable by the defendant as
are additional nominal fixed costs.
