However, many of these provisions either apply equally to or with some modification to writs and warrants for execution, delivery of goods and possession as further considered in CPR 83. For more specific guidance on these and other types of writ and warrant, see Practice Note: Writs and warrants other than for taking control of goods.
For further guidance on the TCG procedure, see: Taking control of the debtor's goods—overview.
Depending on where you are proceeding, a warrant of control support centre may be in operation, which aims to contact the judgment debtor and resolve the warrant. Note that these support centres are not considered in this Practice Note—for further information, see: Support centres opened to speed up resolution of warrants of control—LNB News 20/06/2019 51 and Implementation of new warrant control support centres explained—LNB News 06/11/2019 17.
