10. Prohibited hours of taking control

(1) Subject to paragraph (2), the enforcement agent may not take control of goods of the debtor before 6 am or after 10 pm on any business day.
(2) Paragraph (1) does not apply where —
(a) the Court, on application by the enforcement agent, orders otherwise;
(b) goods are located on the debtor's or another person's premises which are used (whether wholly or partly) to carry on a trade or business and the premises (or part of the premises) are open for the conduct of that trade or business during hours that are prohibited under paragraph (1); or
(c) the enforcement agent has begun to take control of goods during hours that are not prohibited under paragraph (1), or during hours to which paragraph (1) does not apply by virtue of sub-paragraph (a) or (b), and to complete taking control of goods it is reasonably necessary for the enforcement agent to continue to do so during prohibited hours, provided the duration of time spent in taking control of goods is reasonable.
