Hello All A few years ago I took my builder to court for shoddy workmanship and a CCJ was served against the builder to pay just over £5000. He pleaded poverty and, feeling a little pity on him, I accepted a monthly payment of £40, which by my calculations would take him over 10 years to pay back. Anyway, in the first few years he missed the odd payment which I ignored but for the past 6 months he has stopped paying all together. I am considering taking action to recover the rest of the amount he owes which is still over £4000. But I am unsure what method i use, as there is so much conflicting information out there. As I see it I have 2 choices 1. take out a Writ of Control, which I understand will result in a bailiff turning up at his home and demanding the full debt paid or 2. take out am Order to Obtain Information which I believe will bring him back to court to explain his current financial situation. I like the first option, as he has messed me about and I'd like to be rid of him really but I feel he will plead poverty again, (even though he is has recently bought a flashy new builders van and a new executive home). and so Bailiffs may not be able to recover much. Using the 2nd option he will most likely offer a nominal monthly repayment and later down the line start missing payments again. Can anyone advice whats the best approach and how do I go about this to stand any chance of recovering the rest of the debt? Any help much appreciated. M2
