There has recently been a storyline on bailiffs on Eastenders that I feel may have given viewers poor information.

 

Can someone confirm whether;

 

a) a bailiff (county court) can make use of an open upstairs window to gain access to a property.

 

b) a walking possession order is valid whether signed or not

 

c) once entry has been gained, they can then force entry next time they call.

1)If County Court bailiffs come to your home, you don't have to let them in.

They can't force their way in on their first visit, but they can enter through an open window, or an unlocked door.

 

2) yes

 

3) yes but i think they have to go through a process first ( ask the court for permission ) so i don't think it would be the next visit not 100 %sure how it works

I appreciate dramatic licence, but I really thought it gave the impression that bailiffs are entitled to do what they like.

I also noticed when they were banging on the door they referred to themselves as 'Debt Collectors', not bailiffs, a totally different kettle of fish altogether ;)

 

Get your facts straight Eastenders :rolleyes:

a. yes

 

b. yes

 

c. yes - but walking possession orders are never granted to a county court bailiff, but a walking possession agreement must have a signature - otherwise is can be shown to be invalid because has not been agreed.

 

Debt collectors can do none of the above.

Legally its allowed because the bailiff did not commit breaking & entering, but the official guidelines published by the former Department of Constitutional affairs says...

 

Enforcement agents must withdraw from domestic premises if the only person present is, or appears to be, under the age of 18; they can ask when the debtor will be home - if appropriate.
