A high Court judgment was made in my favour But baillifss cannot get answer at her door (avoiding the baillifs) as she is trying stalling and delay hoping i would give up..So far they have made numerous visits to the house but cannot gain an answer from the house. They say they will continue to visit occasionally But are hindered by not knowing any phone numbers (they have changed there numbers) What are my options if any please ? I was advised by the sherriffs to seek legal advice

Hello? anyone there?
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 9 months ago.

Ok - they cant force entry, its illegal. So if she is hiding there is nothing they can do.

But if you have Judgment you can enforce it against the property.

You apply using form N379:

The court will approve an interim order which you can register at the Land Registry using form RX1:

Then you can secure the debt and that way, force sale of property if they dont pay up.
This may be more effective.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
