    I have received the judgement order but not payment

    I have received the judgement order regarding a claim. However, the letting agent (with sole director) hasn't paid yet and even don't respond to my email. I am thinking to apply for the judgement order. Does anyone have any similar experience or any advice?

    Judgement is the easy bit. Collecting is often tougher.

    In what name (letting agency, human director, whatever.. ) is judgement against? What assets do they (agency, human, whatever..) have please?

    By sole director do we take it agency is a company?

    If judgement is against Dodgy Bloke ltd but the company has no assets... not looking promising

      The judgement is against the letting agent. Basically, it is a small company with sole director managing short-term lettings.
      Presumably the person would try to avoid the payment anyway. I am thinking to apply for order company to attend court for questioning and would know things like bank account/balances/any assets etc

        If you know their bank account details you can apply to the bank for settlement.
        I did this once after suing some bailiffs - they were pretty gutted to not be on the recieving end for a change !!

          The judgement debtor is the letting agent and officer would be the person. I only know the person's bank account details but not the bank account details for the letting agent. Would that be helpful or has to be the company account?

            If the judgement is against a ltd company then the account would need to be in that name, I don't think you can go after a director , but I might be wrong. ...

              Unless director was named as debtor on judgement you have no claim against him. You have to try to recover ££ from company, not human.

              I can forsee the future. Company will close down, no assets, start again next day same address, similar name.

                  theartfullodger,

                  The company can close down with debt? I don't understand why that is allowed.

                    Basic capitalism... Write to your MP. (Just as human with no assets can declare themselves bankrupt, but think that costs £650-ish)

                    Can I please check, the judgement is against the ltd company only, no humans named?

                    Did nobody (you, solicitor..) check company assets ?

                      The claim was against the limited company and the person is the sole director. In the judgement order, it didn't say who would pay.

                      Application to check company assets has been made. The company is very bad registered at Company House with account overdue even over 6 months already. The person has several other companies registered doing similar business. I doubt I would get the money back but this type of business running should be noticed and punished.
