Enforcement of County Court Judgments

Enforcing a County Court Judgment

If you have already taken steps to commence legal proceedings and have been successful in obtaining a County Court Judgment against your Debtor, the next thing that you need to consider is how you go about enforcing it and ensuring you get paid.  Our team of experts at CSB Solicitors know the best enforcement options which will suit your personal circumstances. We can help you get your money back from your Debtor.

What happens next?

There are many different ways to enforce a county court judgment. While each option may be available to you, you would be advised to carry out your own research with regards to what assets your Debtor may have. After all, if your Debtor does not have the means to repay the County Court Judgment or have assets which you could recover to satisfy the amount owed, you may end up paying more to enforce a judgment.

Research or investigations may include the following:

    • Form N316: Applying for an order for a debtor to attend court. Use this form to apply to the court for an order that a judgment debtor attends court to give information under oath about their financial situation;
    • Carrying out a search at HM Land Registry to see if the Debtor own property;
    • Instructing a Trace Agent or Enquiry Agent;
    • Searching the data at Companies House;

The most common methods of enforcing a County Court Judgment include:
