FOUR STEPS TO STOP BAILIFFS
Bailiffs are authorised to visit your home in order to collect any debts owed.
People are often confused and unsure about the powers bailiffs hold, so follow these four steps to deal with the bailiff:
BAILIFF RIGHTS OF ENTRY:
WHAT BAILIFFS CAN AND CANNOT DO
If your doors are locked, a bailiff cannot legally enter your home unless you invite them in.
But if they gain entry to your property through an unlocked back door, garage or shed bailiffs can get in and start taking your belongings!
- Stay in your home for as long as required once they have gained entry.
- Seize control of your belongings! They list them, so you cannot then dispose of them yourself, and return at a later date to take them away with a valid Notice of Intention to Re-enter. The notice of intention must give you at least two days clear notice and be signed by the bailiff.
- Enter your house through a connecting door with an unlocked garage or building.
- Force entry into your home if they have a warrant to do so.
- Enter the main entrance to your block of flats, but if the door to your flat is locked they must then have your permission to enter.
- Enter your property if they’ve been invited by a house or flat mate over the age of 16.
- Enter your house between 9pm and 6am.
- Climb over any walls, fences or get in through any windows.
- Enter premises where only a child (under 16) or a vulnerable person is present.
- Force their way past you if you answer the door to them.
If a bailiff enters your home they will list items to take to repay the debt owed. This can be a scary experience, but they can’t just take what they want.
Here is a list of items they can and cannot take, but DO NOT let them in!
BAILIFFS CAN TAKE:
- Luxury items such as TVs, cars, bikes and games consoles
- Jointly owned items in the home or flat
- Goods which were bought with personal loans
- Any cash, cheques, bonds, stocks, shares, and pawn tickets that belong to you
- Vehicle owned by you and kept at your home, business or public highway
BAILIFFS CANNOT TAKE:
- Someone else’s belongings
- Items you need for work or study such as tools, books or computer equipment up to the value of £1,350 (business rate debt is not covered by this clause)
- Things you need for basic domestic needs (clothes/cooker/fridge/furniture/work tools, etc.)
- Anything that belongs to a child
- Goods currently being paid for on hire purchase
- Goods which also act as your home such as a houseboat, static caravan, campervan or tent
- A vehicle which is used for police, fire or ambulance work
- A vehicle parked on private land that is not your home or business
