Enforcement action: county court proceedings: charging orders: enforcement once a charging order has been made
A charging order is normally security for a debt, not satisfaction of it. This means that other methods of enforcing the judgment are still allowed and can be taken simultaneously.
Where you have obtained a final charging order and:
- you consider that another method, or methods, of enforcement will be productive
- the conditions for enforcing a charging order by sale do not apply
leave the final charging order in place and proceed with the alternative course of enforcement action.
If you consider a judgment summons is appropriate, seek advice from the EIS Bradford CCP Technical Team (Debt Management Bradford).
Enforcing a charging order by sale
If you feel that a final charging order should be enforced by sale; for example, where the charge is on either:
- a financial product
- property that is not the judgment debtor’s primary residence
- an investment or holiday property
send the papers with a brief summary to the EIS Bradford CCP Technical Team (Debt Management Bradford).
