Be Aware of Bailiffs.
What are our rights regarding bailiffs?
This new page examines what to do and what rights exist to protect us when bailiffs knock on the door. With fines and debts worth millions of pounds going unpaid every year, bailiffs are very busy. If you are having problems paying a fine, contact the court or relevant organisation and try to negotiate with them. If they don't know your situation, they could assume that you have no intention of paying. Once it reaches this stage, the debt could be passed to a debt collection agency or a warrant might be issued by a court which authorises a firm of bailiffs to try to recover the debt from you.
Paying a bailiff
Debt is a fact of life for many people these days, but if you follow some golden rules you can avoid getting into trouble
Bailiffs recover money that people owe to their clients. They will ask for a secure method of payment - cash, debit or credit card. If you pay by card, you will also have to pay a handling fee.
If bailiffs take your belongings, the company you owe money to can sell your goods at auction, perhaps for only a fraction of their value. More fees will be charged for removing, storing and selling your belongings.
Contact your local Citizens Advice Bureau for advice relating to your specific circumstances. See our Links page on the left.
