Bailiff, enforcement agents, bailiff companies – yes, we have mostly all heard about them. But do you really know who they are acting for and how are they connected with councils?
Did you know that some bailiffs, nowadays referred to as ENFORCEMENT AGENTS, work for private companies? Some enforcement companies are contracted by councils and many of those agents who work for the bailiff companies are self-employed?
This is the list of the top bailiff companies in the UK:
Marston 25% market share
Ross & Roberts 6%
Unfortunately, no matter how we refer to them or how they are employed, the main purpose of their job is the same – Councils use them as the most effective and often controversial method to collect debts owed to them.
A bailiff is protected by law to use methods to collect a debt on behalf of the creditor. Enforcement agents can enter your premises to remove your goods and then sell them at public auctions. Money gained from the auctions are used to settle the debt. This is known as DISTRESS.
Distress can cause a lot of stress.
