Seizures and sales of property

If you receive an enforcement order and you have not paid the debt by the due date, we may issue a warrant that allows an enforcement officer to seize and sell your property (including real estate and vehicles). This is called an 'enforcement warrant'.

Any costs incurred in this process will be added to the total outstanding amount. The money received from the sale of the property will be used to pay the debt.

If there is any money left over after your debt has been paid in full, it will be paid to you. If the money received is not enough to cover your debt, you will be liable for any outstanding amount.
