Writ of Delivery (Asset Recovery)
A writ of delivery is used to recover specific assets where the customer has fallen behind with payments, failed to pay in full or not returned an asset.
Writs of delivery are most effective when a claimant wants to recover the actual asset rather than receive payment. However, the writ can be combined with a money element so that a High Court Enforcement Officer (HCEO) can recover any debt owed at the same time.
Commonly used by finance companies who have sold goods on finance, as the title to the goods does not pass to the purchaser until they have been paid in full, an example would be where the finance company needs to repossess a vehicle where the customer has failed to pay or fallen into arrears.
Another example of where a writ of delivery can be used to recover goods may be where an item such as jewellery, artwork or an antique has been provided to a dealer or auctioneer for sale, and the item is neither sold or returned.
