First, you should check whether you really owe the amount in the enforcement order. If that is the case, you should pay the account – or contact the creditor to conclude a payment agreement.
Even if you cannot pay the full amount immediately: It is still important to contact the creditor and sort out the matter. Ignoring it or burying your head in the sand does not help here. Otherwise, you are at risk of foreclosure – and your possessions might be foreclosed.
If you think that you do not have to pay this account, you can lodge an objection within a period of 14 days as of the date of service of the enforcement order. In this case, a court hearing is held, and the court decides whether or not the claim is justified. Before you actually take this step: Check your documents in detail to determine whether the outstanding claim is really justified. Moreover, court proceedings also lead to costs which you also have to assume in addition, should you be made liable to pay the amount due.
If you do not lodge an objection within a period of 14 days, the enforcement order becomes legally effective. As a result, it is no longer possible to contest the account.
