A third party debt order (TPDO) is a method of enforcement by which a judgment creditor may enforce a debt against money due and owing to the judgment debtor by a third party who is within the jurisdiction. This includes money held in the judgment debtor's name in a bank or building society or money owed to a self-employed judgment debtor in the course of his trade. The court has a discretion whether to grant a third party debt order and whether they do so will be dependent on the circumstances at the time of enforcement.
