Understanding the legal documentation you need to recover specific items can help speed up the recovery process, minimising the often stressful situation of court proceedings. If you are in a position where you need to repossess a financed item, or an item you own, then it is likely you will need to obtain a Writ of Delivery from the High Court in order to do so.
Obtaining a Writ of Delivery
In order to obtain a Writ of Delivery, you will initially need to complete a N293A form, which can be downloaded from the Form Finder section of the Justice.gov website. Within this form you will need to detail the claim and outline who you wish the sealed Writ to be sent to. If you are instructing Able Investigations to assist with the repossession, we will provide details of who to name on the form.
You will also need to specify the item you are seeking possession of and any additional moneys you wish to claim for to cover costs, such as other debts.
This form will then need to be submitted to and processed by the High Court, with a mandatory court fee of £66.
Enforcing a Writ of Delivery
Once the Writ is obtained, you will need to instruct a High Court Enforcement Officer (HCEO) to enforce the Writ on your behalf. While the application process can take 2 weeks, upon instruction Able Investigations HCEOs can recover goods within 24 hours’ notice when required.
If you are unsure about the legal documentation you need to have to instruct an HCEO to help you with repossessions, then why not get in touch with the team at Able Investigations?
