The briefing explains Bailiff Law in relation to a number of different areas so that your business has a greater understanding of the enforcement process.
Attendees will receive information about Bailiff Law in relation to:
- Commercial Evictions
Commercial evictions in the UK are governed by the CRAR procedure, which allows landlords to recover rent arrears through the use of bailiffs. However, there are strict rules that must be followed, and tenants have the right to challenge the enforcement action in court if they believe it to be unlawful or unreasonable.
Traveller evictions in the UK are governed by the common law, which allows landowners to use reasonable force to remove trespassers from their land. Before taking action, landowners must follow a strict legal process, which includes serving notice to the travellers, obtaining a court order, and providing evidence of the trespass. Bailiffs may be involved in the enforcement of the court order.
The process of evicting squatters is governed by the Criminal Law Act 1977. If a property owner discovers that their property has been occupied by squatters, they can apply for an interim possession order (IPO) which can be enforced by bailiffs.
There are a number of rules that must be followed in the UK when enforcing a court order for repossession, including: notice, use of force, sale of goods, protection of vulnerable individuals, and a complaints procedure.
Bailiffs may be involved in debtor tracing as part of the debt recovery process, and may use a range of techniques such as data analysis, skip tracing and surveillance to locate debtors.
