I have a letter from Sheriff Officers saying they have been instructed to commence enforcement action by way of Arrestment/and or Attachment of Effects.


If I was to get my wages arrested would I receive any notice to this? Or would they just go ahead and tell to employer to start deducting payments?


Your advice is appreciated.

Have £20k+ in debt, seriously want to be debt free, currently in temporary accomodation and having business problems.

You will receive a charge for payment. You have 14 days to apply to the court for a time to pay direction to try to get and agreed payment arrangement. If you do nothing then they will go fo the arrestment where they will caontact your employer to start deductions and you will be notified how much this will be.

some people prefer this so it gets paid as only you and your employer know

If the sheriff officers know where you are employed then they will serve an Earnings Arrestment schedule on your employer either by recorded delivery post or in person.

You should also receive a postal copy of the Earnings Arrestment schedule.

As of 6 April 2010, there are new tables of deduction coming into effect which will also apply to earnings arrestments prior to that date.

If you would prefer to avoid this happening and you are in a financial position to offer payment then attempt to make an arrangment - if you do not feel confident about doing this by yourself then contact a money advisor at a local council or CAB.
