1. Do I need to hire a Lawyer to enforce a local or foreign judgement?
Yes, the activities of enforcement are made exclusively by lawyers. It is not possible to provide the enforcement personally or through an agency.
2. In order to enforce do I need to hire a local Bailiff in Milan?
In Italy we don't have private bailiff, the notifications are made by the court. So the answer is no.
3. Is there a unic procedure to enforce goods, bank accounts or real estates belonging to the debtor?
When we start an enforcement we need to choose what we want to enforce. There are different procedures and different court fees for any kind of enforcement (on goods, on banks or on real estate). Every kind of enforcement is a different procedure. But, for example, if the debtor has 5 different bank accounts, we can enforce them with a unic procedure.
4. Are the fees and court fees needed for the enforcement refunded by the debtor in case of positive collection of the credit?
Yes, normally all or almost all the fees are reimbursed.
5. I want to enforce a bank account of a debtor located in Milan. How long does it take?
The enforcement itself it is quite fast. Once that we have all the documentation in our hands we may take 2-3 weeks, depending on the time needed by the court for the notification of the deed we will prepare. Then of course it would be required to wait for the court hearing to have the amount seized assigned by the judge (30-40 additional days on average).
