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.

You are not obliged to let anyone into your home regardless of what they say.

be intimidated

You are under no obligation to speak with a bailiff so do not respond to their intimidation.

sign anything

Never sign anything a bailiff hands to you whatsoever.
