Judgment enforcement - time for change
Judgment enforcement - time for changeDuring August and July the High Court Enforcement Officers Association (HCEOA) undertook an online survey of court users to see whether users wished to see a change to the High Court and County Courts Jurisdiction Order 1991. The HCEOA have published its findings, the survey results clearly showing that court users want the right to choose which enforcement provider to use, without any distinction because of the debt type.
Some of the results showed that:
- 92.17% would consider using High Court Enforcement Officers for the enforcement of consumer regulated judgments.
- 89.12% see no justification for maintaining a distinction in the High Court and County Courts Jurisdiction Order between consumer regulated and non-regulated judgments.
- 87.89% would support a change in the High Court and County Courts Jurisdiction Order to remove the prohibition not allowing High Court Enforcement Officers to enforce consumer regulated judgments.
