"When can a Warrant of Execution be issued and how much can it be issued for?"


 • Before the court can issue a warrant, the defendant must have done either for the following:

1. Failed to pay the amount he or she has been ordered to pay.

2. Fallen behind with at least one of his or her payments.

• The County Court bailiff can get back any amount up to £5000. (This does not apply if you are enforcing an agreement regulated under the Consumer Credit Act 1974.)

• You cannot ask the County Court to issue a warrant for more than £5000 but you can transfer the judgment to the High Court if the warrant is for more than this.

• If the amount owed is £600 or less, you cannot ask the Enforcement Officer to try and get your money back.

• If the amount owed is between £600 and £5000 you have the choice of issuing a warrant in the County Court or in the High Court.
