HM Courts Service announces merger with the Tribunals Service and increase in Courts fees from 4th April 2011.

High Court Enforcement Officers Association has been updated that with effect from the 1st April the HM Court Service (HMCS) will become the HM Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS).

With the change in title comes a change of who payments need to be made to, so with effect of the 1st April 2011, all payments need to be made payable to HM Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS).

In addition to this change, announcements were made for fee increases from the 4th April 2011.  The new fee for transferring a County Court Judgment to the High Court will be increased from £50.00 to £60.00.   This will also mean that the Execution Costs allowed on that Judgment will increase from the current £101.75 to £111.75 in accordance with RSC Order 46 Rule 1.

Additionally, the costs of renewing a Writ rises from £40.00 to £45.00, and the costs of re-issuing a Writ also rise from £50.00 to £60.00.

For further information about how this might affect you, please contact us, or your own Authorised High Court Enforcement Officer.

High Court enforcement activity is being undertaken in an appropriate, flexible and sensitive manner that reflects the challenges we are all facing as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

The Association has developed a best practice Covid-19 plan.
