You may apply to execute or enforce an order by the Small Claims Tribunals (SCT) if both of these conditions apply:
Orders by the SCT can be executed or enforced in the same way as a District Court order. This means if one party does not comply with the order, you may start execution or enforcement proceedings against them in the civil courts.
Enforcing an order does not guarantee an outcome. You should weigh the pros and cons before proceeding.
Yes, you may engage a lawyer to represent you as execution or enforcement proceedings take place in the civil courts (not the SCT).
An appeal does not operate as a stay of execution unless otherwise ordered. You may execute or enforce an order against the other party even if they appeal against the order.
If the other party applies for a stay of execution, the court will arrange for a date and time to hear the application. If the application is allowed, the execution of the order will be stayed (suspended) on conditions determined by the court. You may not be able to execute or enforce it, depending on the conditions.
