Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today. What was the original agreement you had with him?
Thank you. I am unfortunately not available for calls at present but can answer on here. Now that you have been given the go ahead to take this further you have two options – an injunction or a claim for financial compensation for the value of the goods. An injunction can be used to require them to perform a certain action, such as returning the goods to you. However, the court cannot physically force them to do this so you would then have to be looking at enforcement action if they are in breach of the injunction. An individual who violates an injunction may be punished for Contempt of court. The penalty imposed can be punishment by fine, imprisonment, or both.
Alternatively you can consider making a claim for the value of the goods. This is if the prospects of forcing them to return the goods physically is unlikely. You can do this through the county court as well.
In both cases you should consider following preliminary steps to try and resolve this without the need for legal action but I presume that may be futile here based on what has already happened.
This is your basic legal position. I have more detailed advice for you in terms of the steps you need to follow to take this further, which I wish to discuss so please take a second to leave a positive rating for the service so far (by selecting 3, 4 or 5 stars) and I can continue with that and answer any further questions you may have. Don’t worry, there is no extra cost and leaving a rating will not close the question and we can continue this discussion. Thank you
If you man a warrant of execution then that is an enforcement method once a court judgment has been issued in your favour. Usually it is done where you make a claim for money and then you get a warrant of execution to allow bailiffs to possess whatever property/assets the debtor has to allow them to realise the debt
