Roles and Responsibilities

The Sheriff is the enforcement officer of the Court. The Registrar of the Supreme Court is concurrently the Sheriff of Singapore. Bailiffs are officers attached to the Sheriff's Section who are empowered under the Sheriff's authority to execute and carry into effect all writs of execution and court orders. By authority given to the Sheriff and the bailiffs, they may enter the house of the judgment debtor or premises of a third party to seize goods and chattels belonging to the debtor. The general principle is that only personal goods and chattels other than wearing apparel and tools and implements of the debtor may be seized. Apart from the warrant card, the bailiffs of the Supreme Court are also issued a badge and also wear a Sheriff's jacket to project a professional image. 

Stages after Property Seized

Once the goods or property has been seized, the Sheriff will arrange for the sale of the goods or property seized by public auction. The sale will be arranged by the Sheriff after the expiry of the requisite notice of 7 days to allow the debtor to settle the judgment sum or court order. The auction will usually be fixed on a date about 6 weeks after the seizure of the properties. If a third party has a claim to the goods/property seized, the third party can make a claim to the Sheriff. In the event that the plaintiff objects to the third party claim, the Sheriff will arrange for an interpleader summons on behalf of the plaintiff, to be heard by a judge for determining ownership of the property.

In the case of properties seized by a Writ of Distress, the third party claimant has to apply to a judge by way of a summons-in-chambers.
