I had a limited company and the debt was unsecured and related to that. I told the court in writing that the company was insolvent. The bailiff came and the company rented a yard and everything on hp was returned and has ceased trading. Dispite telling the bailiff this he refused to contact the insovency pratictioner and tried to gain entry by saying he had the right and I had to let him in to sign forms. He was threatening saying I could go to prison etc. I gave him my partners mobile number and he said company no longer trades etc being wound up who to contact.He said he could take our personal belongings and would return to take our belongings with a walk in order.There is nothing here that belongs to the ltd company as it was already sold to pay our secured debts. The bailiff refused to accept payment in instalments saying it was for the full amount. A couple of days later in the late evening we had a letter stating that they would come and take our personal belongings and my car etc. The bailiff company still insisted that they could force entry and my partner paid worried that they would break in and frighten the kids. I know by law that this debt was due on the company not us why did the bailiff have to disregard it. The charges are what he likes, ive never had a receipt for payment and feel that I should be able to do something about my treatment but what. The debt was on supplies of goods made not council tax. Thankyou for reading.:confused:

Hi consumerslast and welcome to cag:)


For the bailiffs to be trying to gain entry as far as I am aware there must be a liability order made through the courts. Have you received notice of this? Do you know what Bailiff company it is and for what debt?

You say you rented a yard was the business anything to do with the building trade? I ask as through my own experiences I have learnt that more and more suppliers to the building, home improvement trades are putting a sneaky scentance into their suppliers contracts stating that whoever signs to open the account on behalf of the company is liable for the debt not the company!

Did the Company have a CCJ against it and was this subsequently transferred up to a High Court Writ, if so then you have been attended by a High Court Enforcement Officer and not a Bailiff. What paperwork have you been left?

Ploddertom must be right about the HCEO, or there is no right to force entry. Surely it must be a CCJ not a Liability Order?


Prison for a CCJ? sounds like this bailiff is desperate and trying it on. You need to supply more information.


Unless Wino has got it right about the signatory / building trade thing you shouldn't be paying anything - never mind making arrangements.
