Bailiffs (also known as enforcement agents) have the legal power to remove goods and sell them to settle any unsecured debts you have. They do not need to go into your home to take control of goods.
Bailiffs are not permitted to use force or enter your home without your permission
Bailiffs can visit your home between 06:00 and 21:00, any day of the week
Bailiffs can visit any property where you live or run a business
Bailiffs collect unsecured debt, as well as criminal fines, council tax and child maintenance arrears, and parking penalties
Bailiffs - or enforcement agents - are debt professionals that have been given legal powers to collect debt, either for a private company or for the county court or local council. They have the power to collect a range of debts, including council tax arrears, county court judgements, court fines and so on.
In most cases, bailiffs are not called in until your creditors have launched court proceedings. A debt management plan can help people who owe a significant amount in debt that they’re unable to pay immediately. These plans allow you to repay debts over a certain timeframe, making regular monthly payments.
