Judges Demand

Stock Seized by our HCEO – £24,000.00 Paid

Published On: 28th May 2015

We made direct contact with the debtor on behalf of a National Wholesaler and supplied the debtor with full evidence of the claim and outlined our Clients intentions to pursue this matter further if necessary.

The debtor contacted our office and agreed to repay the balance in installments however, the debtor defaulted on this arrangement.

We were instructed to proceed with County Court Proceeding with a view to enforce the Judgment via HCEO as we were aware of many assets at the address (Convenience Store).

Surprisingly, the debtor failed to reply to the claim form our Client was awarded a CCJ (County Court Judgment) against the debtor.

We then proceeded to instruct our expert HCEO (High Court Enforcement Officers) who attended the debtors premises. Upon attendance the HCEO made contact with a gentleman who refused access to the premises however, our HCEO explained that as the address is a commercial premises they can force entry through a locksmith and seize all assets.

The debtor still refused access to the premises which left our HCEO with no option but to request a locksmith attend the premises.

Upon access to the premises, the HCEO seized all stock but with moments to spare the debtor made full payment to avoid all the stock being taken away.
