With the stress of debts hanging over you the last thing you want to deal with is Bailiffs; they seem ruthless, unkind and unfair at a time of your life when really you need everything to be working in your favour.

The perception of dealing with bailiffs and bailiffs rights has been built up to a point where they seem like these demonic monsters with super powers granted to them by the government; this isn't exactly accurate.

It seems as though there has been a build up of rumour and misperception that has lead to the idea that bailiffs rights are stronger than they really are – even some bailiffs seem to believe these myths, quoting them to property owners as they attempt to gain forced entry to a property.

We are here to listen, help, reassure and resolve your Council Tax & Bailiff problems for free, just as quickly as we can.

We aim to dispel such myths about bailiffs rights with our free bailiff advice. Whether you are dealing with council tax bailiffs or private organisation bailiffs such as Jacobs Bailiffs or Rundles Bailiffs, we want to help you find a peaceful resolution to your problem. We can do that by providing free bailiff advice or stepping in on your behalf to mediate the case until a mutually beneficial solution has been reached.

Rights with Bailiffs

There is a huge misconception of what it is bailiffs rights allow bailiffs to get away with, this is partially because some bailiffs have a tendency to overstep their authority, but we also blame Hollywood. When you see Re-Con men in American films, it isn't quite an accurate representation of what a bailiffs rights are.

If you are concerned that a bailiff may visit your house soon it is best that you are suitably prepared for their visit, if you are it can give you a better idea of what line of action would be best for you to follow. We want to provide bailiff advice to you for free because we know that you've got enough on your plate already – we can also help you mediate your following dealings with the courts or the council to prepare the resolution of your debt.

Let's clear up the biggest myth first – you don't have to let bailiffs in to your home. You don't even have to open the door, in fact, we advise against it. If you know that there are bailiffs at your door we recommend that you hold your conversation with them from a first floor window or through your letter box. Whilst private organisation or council tax bailiffs aren't legally entitled to forcefully enter your home, we always suggest that you don't open the door to them because they could see this as an invitation to enter and we want to give them as little reason and incentive to enter as possible.

Whether they are council tax bailiffs or private bailiffs like those from JBW Bailiffs or Marstons Bailiffs, bailiffs council tax officers are not allowed to take necessities such as clothes, cooking appliances, furniture or work tools, they are however allowed to take luxury items such as TVs or stereos if you allow them entry into your home. It is also worth noting that bailiffs cannot take objects that belong to someone else, but if you do claim that something belongs to someone other than yourself you have to give evidence that will substantiate your claim.

Bailiffs aren't there to take your stuff. Shocked? Most people think that the sole purpose of a bailiff is that they confiscate items of value so that they may reimburse the debt owed, but the primary purpose of a bailiff is to obtain that debt, if they are unable to they are told to seek items of value. Because this is the case most people don't realise that you can pay your debt off when a bailiff visits, meaning they won't bother you further.

You can arrange a new payment scheme with a bailiff by offering to make realistic monthly or weekly payments, but they do have the option to turn down your offer of an arrangement. If you do pay your debt ensure that you receive a receipt as proof of payment and keep it in a safe place.

If you choose not to grant a bailiff access to your home they are at liberty to take things from outside of your home such as your car, so it might be prudent to leave your car at a friend's if you are expecting a visit.
