This department performs the tasks of the enforcement authority of the City of Hilden in accordance with § 2 of the Administrative Enforcement Act of North Rhine-Westphalia (Verwaltungsvollstreckungsgesetz NRW).
The enforcement authority is responsible for the collection of all public-law and, in part, private-law monetary claims of the City of Hilden as well as other external creditors by way of official or enforcement assistance. Enforcement measures against movable assets include:

  • Seizure of movable property including motor vehicles by the enforcement field service
  • garnishments of receivables (e.g. wages, accounts, social benefits and rent)
  • Apartment search procedure
  • Procedure for making a statement of assets
  • Attachment of other realizable rights

The enforcement in the internal and external service is carried out in the city area of Hilden by own enforcement officers. For the enforcement, the debtor has to pay garnishment fees and other costs of enforcement, which can be enforced without a separate notice.

To counteract these enforcement measures, you can transfer the amount due to the account of the city of Hilden, stating your cash reference number, which was given in your request for payment.
