My name is ***** ***** I will try and help you today.
I am sorry to hear of your problem.
There are various methods available to enforce a money judgment and none of them require you to use a solicitor.
If you go on the gov.uk website Enforce a judgment all the methods and necessary forms and fees are available and explained to you.
There is no time limit on the enforcement of judgments.
If the debtor has no funds at present, you can wait to see if their financial position improves and then try and recover your money.
If the judgment was issued before the debtor's death you can enforce it against the personal representative on behalf of their estate.
Enforcement can only be effected against assets of the estate.
By way of clarification you need to start some form of enforcement within 6 years of the date the judgment becomes enforceable pursuant to the Limitation Act 1980 although there is no limit to continue with enforcement as advised.
The claim is against him and he used the money for something else and still owes it to you.
As long as he is alive your claim is only against him.
If he passes away you retain your claim against his estate and the assets it has at the time.
You are welcome.
Thank you for using the service today.
