Paragraph 9 of schedule 7 of Section 99 of the Courts Act 2003 provides as follows:

9 (1) This paragraph applies where an enforcement officer or other person who is under a duty to execute the writ is executing it.
(2) The officer may, by virtue of the writ, seize-
(a) Any goods of the execution debtor that are not exempt goods, and
(b) Any money, banknotes, bills of exchange, promissory notes, bonds, specialities or securities for money belonging to the execution debtor.
(3) ” Exempt goods” means:-
(a) such tools, books, vehicles and other items of equipment as necessary to the execution debtor for use personally by him in his employment, business or vocation;
(b) such clothing, bedding, furniture, household equipment and provisions as are necessary and satisfying the basic domestic needs of the execution debtor and his family.”

Do  NOT delay in trying to get this problem sorted!

I do find it strange that in Number 11 ARE INCLUDED IN THE SEIZURE: they have randomly selected three motor vehicles parked near to the debtors address. Despite the fact that none of these vehicles belonged to the debtor.
