Enforcing Your Judgement

Enforcing Your Judgment

Wilson & Roe is authorised by the Ministry of Justice to enforce all High Court Orders and all County Court Judgments of more than £600 (there is no minimum restriction on high court orders for us).

County Court Judgment

If you have a County Court Judgment and want us to enforce it, we first need to transfer it to the High Court and obtain a Writ of Control on your behalf. We do this as part of our service and free of charge, but you will be required to pay the associated court fee.


Download and complete our application form and send it to us along with your Judgment or Order and we will contact you regarding the next steps.


If you have already received a sealed form N293A, please also include this when sending your Judgment Order and application form, but don’t worry if you don’t – we can assist with this.

High Court Judgment

If your Judgment or Order was awarded in the High Court, we will not need to carry out the transfer process, although we must still apply to the High Court for a Writ of Control which will give us the authority to enforce your case.

High Court Writ of Control

If you would prefer to obtain the sealed Writ of Control yourself, all you need to do is download and complete our application form and send both documents to us to process. Please remember that you must specify, on the Writ, a High Court Enforcement Officer that is employed by Wilson & Roe for us to be able to enforce it for you.

The Enforcement Process

Once we have the Writ of Control, we are required to send a Notice of Enforcement to the debtor which gives them seven clear days to repay the debt and outlines all further costs that will be incurred if payment is not received.
If the debt remains unpaid at the end of the seven clear days notice period, the case will be assigned to one of our enforcement agents who will attend the address.
Our agents are highly trained and reports detailing their visits are updated on our system and shared with you in real time.
We always aim to recover the debt in full at the earliest opportunity and release funds to you after 14 days, in compliance with the Insolvency Act 1986.

What to Expect from Us

To give us the best chance of recovering your debt in full, we carry out extensive investigations to find any additional information that could help and communicate this with our enforcement agents ahead of and during their attendance at the debtor’s property.

Some of the activities we perform to support enforcement include:

Performing extensive searches, including Companies House, Land registry and DVLA
Researching director and shareholder information and addresses
Locating alternative addresses for enforcement
Identification of business opening hours
Searches on social and other media

If required, we will hold regular meetings with you to review performance statistics and service delivery. Our in-house solicitors, Andrew Wilson and Eric Roe, are also on hand to offer guidance and help to manage complex situations and disputes.
