Hello, this is Jim and welcome to JustAnswer.
Thank you for the question, I am reviewing the details now. I will aim to resolve it as quickly as possible for you.
Yes, the judgment being made by the court means you won either at a final hearing or by default - the latter would be if the defendant failed to respond to the court proceedings in time for whatever reason. I would go with either a transfer to the high court which costs under £100 (so that you can use the high court enforcement officers - who have far greater powers than county court bailiffs - they can seize entry to premises, seize anything of value and sell at auction to repay you), or you could apply to wind up the limited company - which is useful if the company has assets (you would need to check their accounts on the companies house website). At this stage I recommend the first option - you do have up to 6 years to enforce and I would try this company who simply adds their fee to the existing CCJ amount: https://www.courtenforcementservices.co.uk/services/ccjs-transferring-high-court/Your suggestion for a bank account freeze is a good one - but it only works if they have money in their account and they are not in an overdraft - it also only works on one day.
I hope this answers the question. If you have any follow up questions then please do let me know.
Just a final note that I am free most days and would be happy to assist with any other queries you may have.
Hi, they would attend the registered office address - please click this link :
The other option to wind up the company would be an option too, thanks
Yes, a limited company must have a registered office address. It depends on the court and how busy they are - I would say if you instruct them today they will send someone out in the next 14 days but you would have to ask the company.
The company can apply to dissolve but the Gazette gives 2 months notice to allow anyone the company owes money to, to object to the dissolution. So you would be fine.
Yes, it should be uploaded on there now or very soon. The court also posts a copy to you so you should receive it early next week
I hope that helps, let me know if you have any other queries. Have a good day, Jim
No, it would say "Judgment" and it will say the amount to be paid, by a certain date (14 days) - you would need to wait until the 14 days is up before you can enforce it.
OK, in that case the court should send you a copy - you can call the court and ask them to send it by email if that helps
The email address is on there - you can use both. In the subject line of the email if you put your name and the defendant's name, and the claim number.
Hopefully I have answered the question about enforcement of the CCJ - let me know if you would like me to clarify anything and I would be happy to do so. Thanks
Yes, that's it - they should succeed in getting the money back for you
Full, so they do all the forms for you, thanks
My pleasure, and you too, thanks
