    I had a Property Seizure and Sale Order (PSSO) which expired but didn't realise that another PSSO which had been applied for by someone else a few months prior, would take precedence. We have been granted another PSSO which now awaits the outcome of the (now) first one.

    Anyway, the other PSSO has been granted in a name that is not the legal name of the defendant. (First and middle names have been transposed, probably because he uses his middle name socially.)

    What I am wondering is, does this mean that PSSO is not enforceable and should the Bailiff default to our (legally named) PSSO?

    Thanks for any help.

    I would think so, but I'm not 100% sure. I would have thought that the name would have to be exactly as on the proceedings from which you obtained the judgement against the debtor.
