Nightfox Investigations & Debt Recovery Ltd will enforce orders for possession issued throughout England and Wales.

An order for possession will be obtained by a landowner or landlord when they wish to remove the occupants from their property or land. This may be due to reasons such as non-payment of rent or occupation without permission.

Regardless whether the order you have obtained relates to the eviction of named tenants or the eviction of squatters, we can help you regain possession of your property or land.

What You Need to Do
Once you obtain a Possession Order you will want a solution that will enable you to minimise any further loss of rent and/or further potentially expensive repair costs. Typically a Possession Order can taka e 8 to 12 weeks to be executed by county court. Understandably, you may want a swifter resolution to your problem.

Before we are able to proceed with our application, there must first be permission from the issuing County Court for the case to be transferred to the High Court for Enforcement under Section 42 of the County Courts Act 1984. This is best requested at the initial application for the Order for Possession. If however, you have an existing Order for Possession, you can make this request using the form N244. Please contact us for further information.

Once this permission is in place, we will complete the necessary additional applications to enable the High Court Writ of Possession to be sealed. Once this has happened, we will schedule in our Agents’ attendance to take back possession of your property (within seven days).

Nightfox Investigations & Debt Recovery Ltd are one of the UK’s leading providers of High Court Recovery Services enforcing Tribunal Awards issued throughout England and Wales.

In 2009 a fast track system was introduced by the Courts to help when you’ve been awarded compensation at an Employment Tribunal but the employer has failed to make payment. Now you are able to instruct High Court Enforcement Agents to act on your behalf to collect the money; in basic terms the simple process enables you to receive your compensation much sooner.

Our Service
Our High Court Enforcement Partners are authorised by the Court, where payment is not forthcoming, to take items belonging to the employer and sell them to clear the amount owed. Very often the risk of removal of goods is enough to make the employer consider their position and settle the sum due.

What You Need to Do
The cost to you for transferring your award to the High Court for enforcement is £66 this fee is added to the amount being enforced and recovered on your behalf from the employer. Having already been through the Court process to be awarded compensation at an Employment Tribunal we recognise that you will simply want to see a swift and efficient conclusion to the matter. By instructing us to support you through the process, this is exactly what you will receive.

“Forfeiture of Lease” is a remedy available to a landlord of a commercial property – quickly enabling the taking back of the building and the termination of the Lease agreement without the need for lengthy Court proceedings.

Most commercial leases contain a “Re-entry clause”, which grants permission for the landlord to affect forfeiture under the grounds of a breach of a specific covenant within the lease (normally non-payment of rent). If this clause is not present, the landlord can still rely on their common law rights.

What We Do
Upon receipt of your instruction, we will schedule in our attendance to peaceably re-enter your property within 24 hours (quite often on the same day). The agents will gain access via a locksmith (outside of business / trading hours), create an inventory of goods within, taking photographs and utility meter readings before displaying possession notices and securing the property.

We will then send out a Torts (Interference with goods Act 1977) notice to the tenant’s last known home address, confirming our actions and advising them that they have an obligation to collect the goods within the property – failing this the landlord has the right to dispose of them as they see fit.

Guaranteed 24 hour removal of travellers from your land or premises

Under Common Law, the landowner has the legal right to remove trespassers from their land – using force if required.

Quick Reponse
The main advantage of the Common Law process is the speed in which the removal can take place without the need for lengthy Court proceedings, reducing the likelihood of further travellers congregating, damage to property and fly tipping – creating additional costs to the landowner when the site is eventually cleared.

Same Day Service
Upon receipt of your instruction, we will generate and serve the required Legal Notice to the individuals on site (normally on the same day) which gives them 24 hours to vacate. Our Agents have a great deal of experience in dealing with Travellers, and as a result on most occasions the site will be cleared within the prescribed time period.

Experts In Traveller Removal
In the unlikely event that they remain on the site, our Agents will have prepared a risk assessment on their initial attendance – which enables us to complete an operational plan for the removal. This will allow the allocation of sufficient resources so that the eviction would be completed as quickly and efficiently as possible. We will liaise with the Police directly and will also arrange for the attendance of specialist removal equipment on the day.

Our High Court Enforcement partners  are entrusted to act on behalf of many Local Authorities under Sections 77 – 78 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994, in assisting them with the removal of unauthorised encampments on Council owned land.

“Very Professional, Fast and Good Old Fashioned Debt Recovery. I had my debt recovered and was very happy with the outcome, my debtor had told me that they were not paying me and had offered me £1 per week before I got Nightfox involved. Nightfox seem like a really old fashioned debt recovery company and after meeting my contact, I understood why and how they do this, he is a mountain of a man yet very intelligent. I was told all my debtor needed was motivating to pay and boy did they do that. Communications with the office could be better but as Natalie said ‘we are better served collecting debts than updating clients constantly’ This company performs well, they will send reports on the visits when asked and all in all do a brilliant job. I would recommend highly and have already done so”

Mr Donal Macwhirter

“They do it the old fashioned way. I was owed money by an online fraudster and after applying to the county courts and getting no help at all from them after 6 months I lost all hope. I was advised by a colleague to call Nightfox. After a chat with members of the Nightfox team and listening to their advice I started to feel more comfortable and knew they would endeavour to track down this fraudster and get my money returned. Well, they tracked the debtor down and had my money returned. If I’m ever placed in this situation again I will definitely be calling on the services of Nightfox and would advise and recommend this firm to anyone. Well done Nightfox, outstanding work and a BIG thank you to you all.”

Liam N

“After months of trying to settle an outstanding balance for a kitchen I had fitted for a customer and getting nowhere I contacted Phil from Nightfox Investigations and explained my case he was more than happy to invest his time and effort into retrieving the outstanding balance I cannot thank Phil and Dave from NightFox enough as I was thinking it was a lost cause Phil assured me he would deal with the matter which he did, thanks again Nightfox team I would recommend you to anyone with the same problem”

Stephen Fagan

“Paid back today debt of £19,000 just deposited in my account thanks to Jason Doyle. I had written this off and thought I’d never see it. Keith came to see me and put me at ease and asked me to be patient, which I was. I gave them a few weeks, called and they were expecting payment that Friday. Here I am now able to trade that little bit longer. Despite my supplier saying they wouldn’t pay me and to ‘do what I had to’ they certainly paid Nightfox and cannot thank them enough. A special thanks to Gemma for paying me early.”

Doss L

“Simple solution to a year long problem! My company instructed Nightfox Investigations to recover from another company that we did subcontract work for. They were paid many months ago but claimed they hadn’t been, we heard they had, so instructed Nightfox. I was impressed by their body-cam footage and the fact they visited straightaway, it took them a little under a month to get all the money back including my costs. I cannot thank the team enough and even accepted being told off for calling everyday, sorry… It was all too exciting for my finance team.”

Karen & Liam Waterworth

“Phil will not take no for an answer. When your invoices and calls are being ignored give Phil at Nightfox a call, he will not be ignored and will not be fobbed off.”

Emily Porter

“Many thanks to all the team at Nightfox Investigations & Debt Recovery Limited, from the initial enquiry I made to you guys, to the meeting I had with Phillip Dunn you guys really did take the stress away from what has been a ridiculously hard 2 years, not only was I let down by my lawyer for whom clearly regarded myself and my wife as an open cheque book, but also the system as a whole clearly favoured my debtor and not ourselves, it is hard to put into words to explain how eternally grateful we are to Nightfox and receiving full payment of our 42k and costs will really change our lives going forward, (Phil my promise of a nice 12 year old single malt is on the way to you this is the least we can do for you) my advice to anybody owed money do not waste time and money with lawyers, if you are lucky enough to meet Mr Dunn then you will clearly get to see first hand why these guys and his team are paid.”
