Hello. My name is***** am a solicitor here to help you with your question. I will respond as soon as practicable which will be some time today.
Hello. Unfortunately this is a relatively common problem - enforcing the Order.
Neither the Court nor the Bailiffs provide a location service for debtors. The bailiffs are usually very practical and will do their best when they go to try to establish where a Defendant has gone to but it is not their job to provide an address for him.
I assuming from what you say that you have obtained the Order. What you can do, if you know yourself, is provide the Court with alternative addresses for service, ie these would be an address you know he has been at and one different from the one you used with the Court. You would need to speak with the Court to do this.
I realise that you are completely stuck if you/the bailiffs can't locate the debtor and the responsibility sits with the Claimant to "find" the debtor. Depending on the level of debt, you could employ a personal investigator.
I am sorry that I don't have any easy answers for you but this is often a problem. Any questions, let me know.
PS - the charge is the registration charge you paid. There is a one off charge of approx £5 to cover this answer.
No worries. Good luck. See if you can speak to the bailiffs, they may not let you.
