Bexleyheath, Blackheath & Petts Wood
Before proceeding to enforce a monetary judgment:
- the debtor must be given an opportunity to pay the judgment debt; and
- the debtor must have been served with the judgment and be aware of its existence.
There are a variety of enforcement methods available and choosing the right method is dependent on the circumstances of the debtor. Whether or not the debtor has any assets is a key consideration.
Our experienced debt recovery and civil litigation team have experience of differing enforcement methods and can advise on the best course of action to recover a judgment debt.
Setting aside judgment
If you have received notice that a judgment has been made against you without you having had any knowledge of the original claim you may be able to make and application to the court to have the judgment set aside. We can advise you about your legal position and prospects of success in such an application and assist you with representation at court if you need it.
If you have managed to obtain a judgment against someone who has now made an application to the Court to have this judgment set aside, we can advise you on what you can do to oppose this application, next steps and possible outcomes. We can also provide representation at Court if required.
