They will not send this by recorded delivery.
Without knowing the circumstances of why it has gone up to High
Court and for what I have no idea whether they have done something wrong or
not. I assume that you are not simply saying that it has been referred to the
High Court Enforcement Officer.
It appears that the judge said he was unsure and it would be in
the forthcoming paperwork which never was forthcoming.
I have just got to the penultimate paragraph of your letter and
this is now making sense. This has not gone up to the High Court, it is simply
been handed to the High Court enforcement officer which is simply an
enforcement officer no different than a bailiff and in fact my firm always uses
the High Court enforcement officer rather than bailiffs for no other reason
than people react to better to the word High Court than they do to bailiff. I
think that is what is happening your circumstances and all that has happened is

The only thing is, you have not had a copy of the judgement.
The court is responsible for contacting you but any competent
claimant solicitor would also send you a copy of the order to make doubly sure.
They will of course give you a copy now as I said earlier as indeed, will the
If you were in court, as you are representing yourself, you would
have been advised at the time of the amount of the order and the presumption is
that if there is nothing else, the payment is made forthwith. Once again, as I
said earlier, it must be paid within 28 days in any event so I cannot see that
you can pass the liability on to anybody else I'm sorry to tell you.
I appreciate this is not the answer you wanted and I wish I could
give you better news but based upon the information you have given me, you have
no option but to pay the debt. I cannot see that you are on any claim or
complaint against anyone other than perhaps the court service if they did not
send the paper order out to you. To be honest, I think I would save my time
rather than file a complaint at the court which will be of little or no effect
in any event.
Does that answer the question? Can I help any
