If we have followed our procedures and you still owe money, we may pursue the debt through the courts.
A County Court Order obtained against you will allow us:
- To use an attachment of earnings
- To use bailiffs to collect the overpayment
- To put a charging order on your house if you own/mortgage it
- To place a third party debt order against any money you hold
If we do have to apply for a County Court Order, we will add costs to your overpayment and you will have to pay these costs as well as the original overpayment
