Factsheet | Enforcing a Money Judgment

If you have a money judgment from any court in England and Wales, Shergroup Enforcement has a solution for you. You can either:
  • use our High Court Enforcement Agents acting under the authority of an appointed High Court Enforcement Officer for judgments over £600 in value*, or;
  • you can use our field agent teams covering the UK for any judgment which cannot be enforced in the High Court
Through this section of our website you can have access to the services of our authorised High Court enforcement officer, and a national team of enforcement agents acting under her authority. Claire Sandbrook is a leading figure in the world of High Court enforcement services having trailblazed many of the initiatives you see today used by High Court enforcement agents.

What does it cost?
The upfront cost to one off users is £156 which covers the cost of the fee we pay to the High Court to seal the document which gives the High Court Enforcement Officer the authority to enforce your judgment. That document is called a Writ of Control. This fee covers :
  • a statutory compliance fee of £90 which covers the initial work of the High Court Enforcement Officer - if the debtor pays all the fees this sum will be returned to you. If the debtor doesn’t pay all the fees then we will send you an invoice for this fee, marked as paid, and our file will be closed
  • the fee to the High Court on sealing the High Court Writ of Control of £66

Once you pay these fees you are on your way to seeing an outcome from your litigation. The strategy is simple – to get you your money wherever possible using the power of the High Court Writ of Control, or if we can’t do that, then to negotiate with your debtor to achieve a satisfactory outcome.

Who regulates Shergroup?
And if you are concerned about how we achieve a successful outcome rest assured our business is highly regulated and we operate both under the auspices of the Lord Chancellor, and the Financial Conduct Authority.

*Statutory provisions mean we can't use our High Court enforcement agents for judgments under €600 in value or judgments which are regulated by the Consumer Credit Act. For these judgments we recommend switching to our "Recovery Agent" service to give you a nationwide field and telephone collection service based on debt collection and negotiation rather than taking legal control of goods.

My judgment is outside England and Wales?
Don't worry we have you covered. We can offer you an enforcement service across the British Isles including Scotland, Northern Ireland, and Eire and even further afield. In fact, Shergroup Enforcement prides itself on finding you an enforcement solution anywhere on the planet. Using a combination of reciprocal treaties or collection strategies we have a way to reach your debtor in any part of the world.
