How our bailiffs work

If deciding whether to seek assistance from an enforcement agency, it is worth understanding how they will help and work with you. While our team work differently depending on the case, here is a brief overview of how our bailiffs (now known as enforcement officers) and the rest of our team work to help you.

First Contact and Assessment

When you get in touch with us, whether by phone or email, it is likely that you will be communicating with a member of our office-based support team. They will be able to offer quick assistance and advice on your particular issue, whether you are dealing with unwanted trespassers, or need assistance to recover debt.

Once our support team has discussed your requirements, we will then advise you on the best route to take to resolve your issue in the quickest and simplest way possible. In many instances, this can involve using Common Law rather than court proceedings, however, if you do find you need to apply for Writs or Warrants, we can advise throughout the entire process.


Once instructed, and relevant paperwork has been required (if relevant), our certificated enforcement agents (formerly known as bailiffs) can act on your behalf. Our team will visit either your debtor, or premises to help you recover monies owed or take control of your land or property.

In instances where we believe situations may unfortunately escalate to violence, we will always request a police presence. This will help with peacekeeping and offer protection to both parties involved.
