Confiscation orders in UK imply persons who have committed offences, have been found guilty and who must pay for the crimes they did. One must know that there are certain rules that stand at the base of issuing a confiscation order. In any case, a person found in this situation must ask for legal support from our criminal solicitors in London. Our team can provide legal representation in front of the authorities for persons accused of fraud, money laundering, traffic offences, drug possession and many others.

How a confiscation order is issued in UK

A confiscation order can be dispensed when a prosecutor asks the Court of Law, as soon as the case has been investigated. Persons with criminal records and who have once again broke the law can receive confiscation orders in UK, in accordance with the provisions of the Proceeds of Crime Act. Every criminal case in UK is subject to assets recovery, where a confiscation order is issued by the Court of Law. The main considerations in this matter involve offenders and crimes through which they have obtained certain benefits, whether money or assets. We remind that the Court of Law decides whether a criminal must receive a confiscation order or not.

This will mostly depend on if the person found guilty of crimes had legal problems in the past. Our criminal lawyers in London can offer complete legal support and can make clarifications in cases which are subject to confiscation orders.

The cases in which a confiscation order is released

Confiscation orders in UK are issued if the offender has been found guilty of crimes by the Crown Court in UK and if the crimes fall under the Proceeds of Crime Act. Additionally, a confiscation order can be received by a criminal if a prosecutor in UK makes a request in this matter to the Court of Law, in compliance with the Proceeds Crime Act. Our criminal defence solicitors in UK are able to explain, from a legal point of view, how criminal confiscation orders are issued in the country.

Deciding for the amount to pay

When the Court of Law decides for a criminal confiscation order, one should consider that such verdict is related to the recoverable amount which needs to be paid by the offender. Our criminal lawyers in London can explain the conditions and the rules which stand for issuing the amount which needs to be paid, when the authorities consider the value of a property on the market at the time of buying and at the time when the individual receives the confiscation order.
