If you have obtained an Order for Possession and require a dedicated, knowledgeable team to assist you with the eviction as quickly as possible, then the 24 Hour Bailiffs Limited can help.

We understand that the process of recovering your property from a tenant can be a gruelling, onerous hardship and when a Possession Order is finally awarded…to find out that the county court bailiffs can take up to another 2 months to undertake the eviction can be heartbreaking.

At the 24 Hour Bailiffs Limited, we take over from the stress and get your residential eviction actioned on average WITHIN 7 DAYS.


We offer one of the most efficient and low cost services in the UK.

In regards to your residential eviction we are able to assistance you with the process within 24 HOURS of your instructions. On obtaining the Order for Possession, we are able to remove the tenants through the use of our High Court Enforcement Officers by transferring the Order to the High Court and obtaining a Writ of Possession.

Before being able to undertake this action however, we would have to obtain permission from the Judge at the County Court where you obtained the Order of Possession originally. The Judge would have to find that you have valid reason to use a High Court Enforcement Officer, who can act within 24 hours, rather than County Court Bailiffs that can take between 6 weeks and 3 months to remove a tenant. Therefore, we would need to make an application by request to the Judge.  Without this permission, private bailiffs can not be used.

In order to apply for this, an application would need to be completed, we are able to complete this application on your behalf for a fixed fee of £120.00 (including VAT) plus the court fee of £50.00. Our legal team are able to draft the documentation so that a Judge may look favourably on your situation and find that it is reasonable and necessary to act promptly in the re-possession of the property and grant permission to use a High Court Enforcement Officer.

Generally, the documentation is placed before the County Court Judge and we have an answer as to whether the application has been approved within 48 hours. Our in house legal team are experienced in this area and are able to complete the paperwork to the highest standard on your behalf.

On approved receipt of the application from the Judge, granting permission to use a High Court Enforcement Officer to take possession of your property, we are able to transfer the Order to the high court on your behalf, which will then allow you to use High Court Enforcement Officers to remove the tenant from your property as effectively and quickly as possible.

The cost of undertaking the transfer of the Order to the High Court is a regulatory administrative fee of £60.00 which can be reclaimed from your tenant as an added expense, should you have also gained a County Court Judgement against your tenant for rent outstanding or money owed.

On the High Court processing the Order, we are granted a sealed Writ of Possession, which then allows us to undertake the re-possession of the property and the eviction of your tenant on your behalf.

The entire process generally takes approximately 7 days, which is faster than the County Court Bailiffs.

Overall, the enforcement process is generally much quicker than returning to the court to apply for an eviction order and using the County Court Bailiffs. On receipt of the Writ of Possession from the High Court, we are able to act within 24 Hours to complete the eviction.

The costs of undertaking the eviction and repossession of the property are £495.00 plus VAT for the attendance of a High Court Enforcement Officer (this includes the first hour on site), with £75.00 per hour being charged thereafter plus locksmiths fees (if required). Depending on the complexity of the locks, it is often the case that no longer than an hour is required on site to undertake the repossession. However, this can be discussed with the enforcement team, as often there are additional details required and arrangements can be made when undertaking a residential eviction.
