Enforcement

How to exercise Your rights in an enforcement procedure?

By initiating an enforcement procedure, the enforcement agent helps You attain all the money, objects, and rights listed in Your Enforcement Title in as short a time as possible.

In order to file for enforcement, You need to provide Your enforcement agent with the following:

1. A Request for Enforcement in 3 (three) copies;  Click here to download a request template.

2. The original or a notary-certified photocopy of the Enforcement Title; and

3. A power of attorney in case the individual submitting the request is not the creditor himself/herself.

Explanation:

The Request for Enforcement is:

-          filled out in handwriting, typescript or computer printout with information known to the submitter;

-          signed by the creditor or his/her legal representative; and

-          submitted directly at the enforcement agent’s office or by mail.

 

An Enforcement Title is:  

-          an executive court decision (a verdict or a ruling) and a court settlement;

-          a decision and a settlement in an administrative procedure that impose monetary liability;

-          an executive public notary title;

-          a decision issued by a Notary Public allowing enforcement based on an authentic title (“pay order”) and

-          other titles as requested by law.

* The Enforcement Title, except for the settlement, bears a stamp confirming the enforceability. If there are legal grounds, this stamp can be obtained by submitting the Enforcement Title at the Court’s Public Service Counter, the competent service of the Authority, or the Notary’s Office which have issued the Enforcement Title.


The creditor can freely choose the authorised enforcement agents.
