Whether you are a residential or commercial landlord who wishes to recover outstanding rent arrears or a business owner who needs to chase debtors for unpaid invoices, there are multiple situations where you would need the help of certificated enforcement officer. Certificated Enforcement Officers are responsible for enforcing court judgements or orders for £600 or more. They were previously known as certificated bailiffs.
What can certificated Enforcement Officers do for me?
There are some situations that require the use of certified enforcement officer, for example Commercial Rent Arrears Recovery (CRAR) procedures that allow you to recover outstanding rent that is from commercial tenants. Moreover, you will in the majority of cases want to use the services of a certificated Enforcement Officer if you want to make sure that all the paperwork is filled out correctly when you start the procedure for recovering debts. Having incorrect paperwork can be a massive setback to the case so it is not something worth risking.
By using certificated Enforcement Officers to recover monies owed, you can legally and quickly seize goods belonging to the debtor in order to cover the costs of the debts owed. It is often difficult to mitigate losses from bad debts without professional help, so it is quite likely to be cheaper and less time-consuming to use the services of Enforcement Officers.
Certificated Enforcement Officers must pass strict guidelines proving that they are a “fit and proper person” in order to earn their Enforcement Officer certificate. With this certificate they can enforce various types of debt that range from child support and criminal files to unpaid invoices and rent arrears. They have the right to visit a debtor’s property, remove and sell their goods in order to pay off the debt. They are not the same thing as a debt collector who works on behalf of the collection agency.
