“Can’t Pay, we’ll take it away.” Ch 5 last night

Quite interested to see on last night’s programme that a woman was evicted suddenly by High Court enforcement officers. They said, had the eviction gone through the normal court it would have taken six weeks but if you decided to refer it to the High Court they will do it within 24 hours! Can't Pay, we'll take it away

Does anyone have experience of this?

A friend is currently evicting none paying tenants and this was not something I’ve come across before.

Cheers

Gillian

Hi David

Have you considered sending a Freedom of Information request to obtain statistics from all Courts?

This could be the backbone of an excellent piece of PR for you.

I'll look into it but I'm pretty sure they don't record the timescales for the length of time it takes them to execute the order after instruction.

Interesting suggestion Mark

David wasn't meaning to doubt what you said but 6 months just staggered me. No wonder instruction times aren't logged!!

No problem I didn't think you were, just thought I'd try and explain the reasons.

To add something further, the way the CCB collate some of their statistics I wouldn't believe what I'd find anyway. They are misleading at best. Our local court was showing a 106% collection rate on money judgments recently.

Look at the bottom left of this comment and you will see an orange box with rounded corners. Inside that box, in white letters, it says "reply to comment".

When you click that button it will add the name of the person you are replying to as well as the date/time of the comment you are replying to. The name links to that persons member profile, the date/time links to the comment you are replying to.

See the link at the top of this comment which says "Reply to the comment left by "Industry Observer " at "21/10/2014 - 14:45" as an example 🙂

3 separate replies as it makes it easier for readers to see who you were replying to and which comment. Just image a thread which is 6 pages long and somebody wanted to reply to six comments, some of which are yours, and which are at varying pages throughout the thread.
