What to Consider When Considering a High Court Enforcement Agency?


If you have received a County Court Judgement against your debtor, you can recover your asset using Shergroup’s High Court Enforcement solutions. If there are protestors or trespassers on your private land you wish to remove our enforcement officers can even help you remove them legally.

If you’re unfamiliar with this type of situation, you might find it difficult to pinpoint your needs. An impulsive decision could cause delays, and those delays could cause your circumstances to change unexpectedly and cost you more money. If your chosen provider doesn’t comprehend the legal constraints placed on their duty, a badly executed enforcement task may even have legal repercussions. Because of this, the enforcement firm you hire must know the law, training, and expertise.

In order to assist you to find the most professional, effective, and efficient solution, this guide will look at things to look for when hiring enforcement services.

When can enforcement officers assist you?

An Enforcement officer can assist you with a variety of tasks, including |

Suited to your situation

It’s important to understand the specific services that various enforcement agents provide.

Certified High Court Enforcement Officers serve in the same capacity as certified bailiffs. They might work for a civil enforcement organisation or the county courts.

After the County Courts have rendered the necessary judgment and you have paid to acquire a High Court Writ, High Court Enforcement Agents work to recover debts. A variety of High Court writs, such as a Writ of Control, Writ of Delivery, and Writ of Possession, can be enforced by certified HCEOs.

Enforcement of Public Order Teams is highly trained to handle events involving public order, such as the eviction of squatters, protesters, and travellers. Our crews have received specialised training to handle situations when there is a high likelihood of injury or significant resistance.

It’s also a good idea to confirm whether your potential agency deals with business clients, individual clients, government agencies, or any combination of the three.

Highly Trained

Using Certificated Enforcement Officers is essential necessary since it ensures that the agents you’ve entrusted with your work are “fit and suitable people” by the county court. A non-certified officer being appointed to seize property, for example, may be regarded as fraudulent because certified police have some additional authorities that civilians do not. Impersonating a certified enforcement officer is against the law.

It’s also critical that your officers are knowledgeable about the laws, rules, and regulations that govern their conduct in order to keep everyone involved on the right side of the law.

Public Order Enforcement Officers must have the necessary training because they will likely be placed in high-risk situations. For instance, the Public Order Enforcement Team at Shergroup has received training at level 2, which is comparable to the training for police tactical support units. In addition, they receive instruction in the use of shields as cover as well as first aid, conflict resolution, and handcuff restraint.


It can be helpful to do some research on the cases that your preferred enforcement agency has handled in the past and how long they have been in operation.

You can determine from this if they are likely to have officers who commonly handle the problem you are having. Officers with more experience will have a deeper understanding of their specialisation and are more likely to maintain composure under pressure.

A Quality Reputation

Additionally, the reputation of an agency can teach you a lot. You could read reviews from others who have previously worked with them to learn more about this.

Even while their website will likely include some of these, you may need to search Google or go to sites like Trustpilot for a more objective assessment of their professionalism and level of service.

The service’s client retention rate may also be a good indicator of how valuable it is. If customers keep returning to them, they are probably offering a high-quality customer experience.


It’s essential to research the regions of the country that your potential agents serve as well as their base of operations. For instance, certain law enforcement officers might decide against working in Scotland or Wales.

Agents with a thorough understanding of their sector may be helpful if any type of debtor tracing is involved in your case. They are more likely to have connections and local knowledge, which could help your case progress more swiftly.

Response Speed

You should find out how quickly the team can address your issue while weighing your options.

This is frequently crucial in time-sensitive situations, such as when someone is intruding on your property or occupying it, or when a debtor is likely to flee.

The response may also reveal details about the team’s organisational structure and geographic base of operations.

Excellent Customer Service

An effective enforcement agency will work quickly and keep you updated on the status of your case.

The first few times you get in touch with a company can tell you a lot about what to expect going forward. Do they appear knowledgeable about your particular problem? Do they provide responses in the timeframe they have promised? What inquiries do they make? What kind of support do they provide?
