Since 1995 we have been adding value to our function as High Court Enforcement professionals by helping our client community collect outstanding B2B debts.

Introduction |

When you obtain a county court judgment (CCJ) but struggle to recover the owed amount, transferring it to the high court can be an effective solution. By transferring the CCJ, you gain access to an additional enforcement option, being to instruct a high court enforcement officer (HCEOs) to seize assets. This blog post will guide you through the process of transferring your CCJ to the high court, ensuring a stronger chance of successful enforcement. 

Understanding the Need for Transfer |

To effectively enforce a CCJ, you may need to consider transferring it to the high court. The high court has more extensive enforcement powers and can enforce judgments more swiftly. By transferring your CCJ, you can benefit from the expertise and resources of HCEOs, providing you with a greater chance of recovering the debt.  And if you want to see how High Court Enforcement Officers and their Agents can help you please check out Shergroup TV where our TV shows filmed between 2022 and 2023.   

Checking Eligibility for Transfer |

Before initiating the transfer process, you need to verify if your CCJ meets certain criteria. The judgment must be over £600, excluding interest and costs. Additionally, it should be less than six years old, and the debtor may be an individual, sole trader, limited company, or unincorporated association. If these conditions are met, you can proceed with the transfer application. 

Initiating the Transfer Application |

To transfer your CCJ to the high court, some additional paperwork is needed.  However, using our service, we can take care of all the formalities for you for just a simple fee of £161.00.  We will work with you to fill in the required details accurately, ensuring no errors or omissions.  We will include all the relevant information about your judgment, the debtor, and yourself. Once completed, we will submit the application to the relevant court along with the application fee. 

Paying the Transfer Fee |

Our one-time fee includes the fee to issue a High Court Writ of Control and you can pay this online using our website link.  Through our Account Manager Program, we can assist larger customers or those requiring an invoice by connecting a dedicated person to your account. This individual will look after your entire portfolio of CCJ transfers.

Issuing the High Court Writ of Control |

After we submit your application and fee, we will send the County Court’s Certificate of Judgment and the Writ of Control paperwork to the High Court or District Registry to issue the Writ in the name of our High Court Enforcement Officer, Mrs Claire Louise Sandbrook.  If you issue your Writ out of London, the process can take a few days. However, issuing it out of a District Registry can extend the timescale to a longer period. We will keep you fully in the loop on timescales and help you through this process. Review your request. It typically takes a few weeks for the court to process and make a decision. 

Essentially when you use our service you are outsourcing the process to us to manage your CCJ Transfer.  In the last 24 years, we have transferred over 500,000 judgments, giving us valuable knowledge of what to expect from the court system and how to efficiently assist you in transferring your CCJ within the limits of the law.

Engaging High Court Enforcement Officers (HCEOs) |

Once the Writ of Control is issued we will send it to our enforcement agent for the area in which your debtor is located and manage the attendance.  We will have checked your debtor by this stage so we have the best chance of meeting them in their home or business surroundings to ensure we can take any goods they own into “legal control.”  Ultimately if they do not co-operate with us we can remove goods and sell them to pay your debt and this is the real power of the High Court Writ of Control.  Again, you can see us in action on Shergroup TV in our TV show, “Call The Bailiffs, Time to Pay Up” which was produced for Channel 5 TV.
