As a creditor, you have various options available to you to help get your money back from a debtor. One of these methods is to instruct our certificated bailiffs. Here, we explain what our bailiffs can and can’t do when they visit the debtor, including when they can access a property, the debtor’s rights when our bailiffs call at their home and what happens if our bailiffs seize the goods from the debtor.
Our bailiff’s job is to seize assets belonging to the debtor so they can be sold and the money raised credited against the debt. Our bailiffs can also be used to evict tenants from a property, either commercial or residential. The process for eviction from commercial premises is very simple and can happen without a court process. Eviction from a residential property can be a little more complex, but we will be happy to answer your questions on this. For more information on using our bailiffs for eviction, see our residential tenant evictions section or call us on 0330 900 8000.
