We hope that you will not find a need to complain but, in the event that you do, our Complaints Process can help if you need to make a complaint about a High Court Enforcement Officer, or the High Court Enforcement Officers Association.

I'd like to file a complaint about:  
A High Court Enforcement Officer  If you have made a complaint about a High Court Enforcement Officer to the enforcement company they work for and are not satisfied with the outcome, please fill in our complaints form below.
An enforcement company If you have made a complaint to the enforcement company in question and are not satisfied with the outcome, please fill in our complaints form below.

A writ or order If your complaint is about an amount of money owed, or whether a writ is legal, you must take these to either the creditor, or the court involved. We cannot investigate these types of complaints.
High Court enforcement fees

As the majority of our fees are set in law, any disagreements about fee rates must be made to a court in an assessment hearing under Civil Procedure Rules Part 84.16. We recommend seeking advice from a solicitor, Citizens Advice, or another independent legal advice service before you make an application.

If you have a complaint about how and when High Court enforcement fees have been applied, please fill in our complaints form below.

Council Tax, Parking Fines, Business Rates, Commercial Rent, County Court Bailiff, Eviction by a County Court Bailiff, A letter from a Debt Recovery Company

We are only able to investigate complaints about High Court Writs which involve our members or the enforcement company they work for.

We strongly recommend that you contact the Civil Enforcement Association (CIVEA) at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. who can assist you with your complaint.

Please note, they may advise you to contact the enforcing company and follow its internal complaints procedure, if you have not already done so, before they can escalate your complaint.
