Hello, thank you for your question. My name is***** am a barrister and will assist you with this issue today.

Your next step is to consider enforcement. There are lots of different methods depending on what assets the Defendant might have.
Here are some examples:
- Charging Order (to put onto any house he may own)
- Third party debt order (to remove money from his account, is he has any)
- Attachment to earnings order (to take money from his wages)
Or you can utilise a bailiff who can attend at his property and request payment or else threaten to take goods.
You can use the county court bailiffs or in certain circumstances you can use the high court bailiffs.
Do yo know which of these might be the most appropriate against him? Then I can give you more information.
Ok well you can apply to use the bailiff yourself or you can contact a bailiff company and they can assist you.
To apply yourself, use this form: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/866797/n323-eng.pdf
Here is some general information on enforcement: https://www.gov.uk/make-court-claim-for-money/enforce-a-judgment.
If you want to use a company to apply for you then just google "county court bailiff" and they can help you.
Don't worry too much about the costs as the bailiff charges can be added onto the debt and collected from the Defendant, assuming he has enough assets etc to cover them.
Unfortunately there will be a delay at the moment though on the bailiffs going out due to the Coronavirus.
I hope this helps, if you can please accept my answer and rate me 5 stars (in the top right of your screen) then Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
