Transferring judgments from countries outside the United Kingdom is made easy using Shergroup’s fixed price service European Enforcement Order service.
If you have a European Enforcement Order, or a European Payment Order, that needs to be enforced in England and Wales, you can send your paperwork to TEAM Shergroup and we provide a complete service to have the judgment recognised in the High Court, and then enforced at the business or residential address of your Judgment Debtor.
As part of this service, we will help you identify the whereabouts of your Judgment Debtor and look at the background to the judgment. Business debts can be checked easily to see if the business is still trading and has goods which can be taken into legal control.
Enforcement against an individual involves checking the address and asking you to share with us as much background information as possible about the Judgment Debtor. You can add this to the details that you supply when uploading your European Enforcement Order/European Payment Order information.
When you use our complete service, you don’t need to fill in any forms, or worry about the detail of the procedure. We will ask you to confirm if your Judgment Debtor has admitted your claim, agreed a settlement or filed a defence. The reason is that your Judgment Debtor’s response will determine what form we apply to the Court.
If your European Enforcement Order/European Payment Order is not in English, we will ask you to provide a Certified Translation of the wording into English. If you get stuck on this part of the process, we can help you obtain the right form of translation. There will however be an extra cost for the translation service.
Once we have all the documents in place, we will send all the documents to the High Court in London for processing in the Foreign Department. Years of working with foreign judgments means we know our way round the Court, and the process.
The result of all this activity is that you will have an enforceable judgment in England and Wales. Where the European Enforcement Order is over £600, we recommend using a Writ of Control as your first step to enforce your judgment in the UK. We can instruct Shergroup High Court Enforcement agents to attend at the address we have located to compel payment.
For larger value European Enforcement Orders/European Payment Orders, you can combine the Writ of Control with a Charging Order, or a Third Party Debt Order. These additional enforcement measures will secure the judgment debt against a property, shares, or a bank account.
All you now need to do is upload your paperwork (make sure you send us all the documentation) by scanning and uploading, pay your fee and fill in your details.
Our fulfilment team will then pick up your purchase and process your order just as they always have.
You will be assigned a dedicated Business Solutions Advisor to ensure you are supported through the enforcement process. You can still reach out to them directly, and they are there to support you in the delivery of the service you have purchased. They also have detailed product knowledge to help you on any of the services or products you see in our shop.
