I have a Baillif who claims that he did a close possession. There are no fees noting this nor any written indication. The Bailliff screwed up on paperwork, can he now retrospectively say that in actual fact he had levied by way of clsoe possession and if so, how can he evidence it ?

If the defaulter does not accept and sign the terms of the walking possession agreement and you are not able to arrange immediate removal, you can sometimes take close possession of the goods as a temporary measure.

close possession

Do this by leaving someone else in possession on the premises (for example a bailiff or another debt manager).

 

This method of impounding goods is expensive.

Close Possesion Close Possession simply means that the bailiff will be left on the premises to guard the goods as a “possession man” to ensure that the goods are kept safe and are not removed.

 

Pinched from Tomtubbies site ;)

A close possession agreement is where a bailiff is actually left guarding the goods.

 

I doubt they did this

So if a Baillif is merely at my home waiting for me to obtain my card detaisl to pay the debt, is that close possession ? I received no notice at the time that a close possession was in progress apart form observing the T&%T sit on my conservatory sofa.

You didnt leave the house then I take it so he wasnt guarding your property like a nice man that he is then..... So no it doesnt sound like a close possesion to me.

ermm, i did leave the house before he had decided to let himself into my back garden and open the conservatory door, whereupon a starled member of my family rang me on the mobile to advise that he was sat in my conservatory.

no, my home was locked, nbut the rear garden entrance to the conservatory was unlocked, though the doors from the conservatory to the house was locked, so he could not get into the house.

i signed the "inventory of goods removed" with the endorsement as follows:-

 

"I hereby confirm that this inventory is an accurate description of the items which have not been removed by bristow and suitor and of their condition at the time of this notice."

 

The section that says "I request that they be held for a minimum period of 5 days abd until suitable sale date can be arranged" was deleted and across the entire document its says "VOID"

 

I also signed the receipt which was endorsed "I confirm that i have paid the money costs disputed" I deleted "willingly on behalf of the defaulter and that under no circumstances will it be refunded" Then i signed it, his copy says the same.
