High Court Enforcement

JTR Collections Ltd is affiliated with Frank Whitworth, High Court Enforcement Officer at Frank G Whitworth and is authorised to execute High Court Writs.

This can be a faster and more cost-effective way of recovering money that is owed to you.

If you have a County Court Judgement (CCJ) that is less than 6 years old and is above £600, you have the option to transfer your case up to authorise High Court Enforcement. This allows us to instruct a qualified, certified Enforcement Agent (formally Bailiff), who is under the supervision of a High Court Enforcement Officer (formally known as a Sheriff’s Officer), to execute the High Court Writ, to recover the money you are owed.

Our Enforcement Agents will aim to collect payment in full from the debtor, including any interest and all fees. If this is not a possibility and the claimant agrees (there is no obligation to do so), then the debtor may be given the option to enter into a repayment arrangement. In this case a Controlled Goods Agreement will be put into place.

If the debtor fails to settle the amount due, and has goods that could be sold, our Enforcement Agents will seize and then sell the debtors goods at auction. All costs involved will be added to the debt.

To transfer your case up to the High Court costs £66. There is also a compliance fee of £75 plus VAT. These fees are payable at the time of instruction however, they will then be added to the balance due and recovered from the debtor if the enforcement is successful. If for any reason, we are unable to recover the debt, the fees are non-refundable.

To go ahead, simply download, complete and return the instruction form. Further details, including return address, are shown on the form.

On receipt of the completed form, a member of the High Court Enforcement Office team will check the details and load your case onto the system. They will then complete the relevant paperwork, contact you for a signature and post the documents to the court. The court will transfer the case up and return a High Court Writ of control to the HCEO.

The first step of the recovery process is to issue a Notice of Enforcement to the debtor. This gives the debtor 14 days to contact the office to make payment. If the balance is not paid, or an appropriate agreement has not been reached within this time, then the case will be passed to an Enforcement Agent for collection.

HCEO’s and Enforcement Agents carrying out High Court Writs under the Instruction of HCEO’s have more extensive powers than other debt collectors. This significantly increases the likelihood of a successful recovery.
