How Do I Choose a High Court Enforcement Agency?
7th July 2020
So, you’ve obtained a judgment against your debtor, and it’s time to instruct a High Court Enforcement Agency to collect your money for you.
You might know the process, but you still need to decide which High Court Enforcement Agency to trust to make a successful collection.
The last thing you want to do is fall at the final hurdle and risk your debtor slipping through your fingers. You need a High Court Enforcement Agency you can trust to act quickly, professionally, and effectively.
Aside from checking they are an authorised and legitimate High Court Enforcement Agency, here are a few things to consider when researching High Court Enforcement Agencies:
If you know of anyone who has had success with High Court Enforcement in the past, it’s a good idea to ask them about who they used and their experience. Failing that, reading through reviews on independent sites like Trustpilot and Google should give you an indication of the company’s reputation. The more positive reviews, the better.
With over 1,000 positive reviews for DCBL on Trustpilot, it’s unsurprising we boast a 98% client retention rate. This means that when our clients instruct us once, they trust us again and again with their future cases.
All High Court Enforcement Agents must act professionally and within strict guidelines. Ethical enforcement is extremely important, as overzealous agents risk reputational damage if they act unprofessionally.
At DCBL our agents keep their knowledge up to date with regular stringent compliance training and have years of experience in the field, but you don’t need to take our word for it. Our exclusive participation in the hit Channel 5 TV programme “Can’t Pay? We’ll Take It Away!” provides unique transparency into how we work and more importantly, how successful we are.
Local or National Coverage
As High Court Enforcement relies on face to face action, locality to your debtor is an important factor.
Thankfully, as one of the UK’s largest enforcement companies, DCBL has national coverage with five regional offices up and down the UK. Wherever your debtor is, we have agents on hand to carry out enforcement.
While ultimately you just want your money back, you also want it done with as little stress as possible. It’s important that you feel there is an open line of communication between you and your High Court Enforcement Agency so you can feel reassured as well as be kept up to date with any progress throughout your case.
The best way to assess this is to call up High Court Enforcement Agencies to discuss your case with their team. You will be able to gauge how confident they are, their level of expertise, and what support they can offer throughout the process.
Your DCBL account manager will send you detailed agent reports after every visit, and keep you updated whenever your debtor makes a payment.
If you are ready to enforce your judgment and get your money back, DCBL is the perfect partner to help you do this.
