When a creditor:
- Obtains a Court Order against you for the payment of money (a “Judgment”); and
- You do not pay.
That creditor can ask the High Court to issue a Writ of Control, which is addressed to an Authorised High Court Enforcement Officer. It asks the Authorised High Court Enforcement Officer to enforce the judgment. The Writ is the Authorised High Court Enforcement Officer’s authority to enforce the Court’s judgment either:
- Collecting the money owed from you; or
- Taking (“impounding”) sufficient of your goods to be sold at auction to raise what is owed.
You should note that the main aim of Shergroup High Court Enforcement Agents is to collect the money owed, not to deprive you of possession and use of your goods. They will try, so far as it is possible, to protect both your interests and those of the creditor. They can help and advise you in the best way if you are honest about your circumstances from the outset.
