Area of Operation and Territorial Jurisdiction

A private enforcement agent is licensed to act within the jurisdiction of the district court, within which district, the private enforcement agent has registered its office.

Lukov, Gorchev & Daskalov enforcement agents are, at present, licensed to act on the territory of the Plovdiv district court which includes the jurisdictions of regional courts (first level courts of law) of the cities of Plovdiv, Asenovgrad, Parvomay and Karlovo. The jurisdiction determines the competency of the agents to open cases and carry out enforcement procedures given that agent’s district includes the location of:

  1. Debtor’s movable or immovable property, subject to enforcement proceedings
  2. The permanent registered address of the third obligated person (such being a person or entity owing moneys or property to the debtor, debtor’s employer, or any person having material obligations to the debtor subject to contract or other agreement) in any case when such obligation is attached to compensate for the debt at hand.
  3. The place of due performance of any action (or restraint from action) when such is the subject of the enforcement proceedings.
  4. In case of a child support, alimony dues or other adjudicated support allowance – the permanent registered address of the creditor or the debtor, the right of choice belonging to the creditor.

A creditor having registered address within the jurisdiction of the Plovdiv District Court may file a request with the offices of Lukov, Gorchev & Daskalov, private enforcement agents to initiate proceedings, to investigate the property rights of their debtor as well as to levy garnishments or affix property regardless of the rule that actual enforcement has to be performed by an enforcement agent with different territorial jurisdiction. After the attachment of the property rights is duly registered, the case is subject to transfer to an enforcement agent with jurisdiction as outlined from 1 to 4 above. When the subject to enforcement is monetary dues by a third person to the debtor the case is not to be transferred regardless of the fact that the third person’s address is in another district.
