What is an order for sale?

An "Order for Sale" is a court order to sell a property you own (the property should already be subject to a Charging Order) so a debt can be paid out of the proceeds of the sale.

You can object to this order by filing written evidence setting out your objections not less than 7 days before the hearing date. You must send copies of your objections to the court and the creditor. You will have to attend the hearing.

The judge will consider the creditors case and the evidence you have filed. If the judge is satisfied that a final order should be made the court will draw the order.
