Can anyone help me with an answer to this?

 

We had our landlord turn up with bailiffs for outstanding rent (not disputed) and the bailiff asked me to pay and if not he would take our 'goods'. We couldn't pay and as the business was closed we had no option but to let him.

 

What we weren't expecting was that they literally removed absolutely everything, stock, desks, computers, brochures, our post, product point of sale and water coolers belonging to another company.

 

I raised the question of post and water coolers with the landlord later but he denies any knowledge of it.

 

My questions are, should I have been given a manifest of what was taken and do I have any comeback regarding the post and rental items?

 

Thanks

yes you should have had something listing the goods they were removing

 

 

I'm not good with rents but someone will be along soon and i will have a look around and see what i can find

 

did they leave you any paperwork

have they previously levied your goods

how much are the rent arrears

value of goods removed

did the bailiff show you his certificate

I'm sure with rent no prior notice or levy is required, no Court Order, just turn up and remove but a list of everything should be provided and they can only take what belongs to the tenant. If tenant has goods for sale in shop that are on credit from his supplier then they are not his property unless he has paid for them.

 

A list of missing items should be forwarded to bailiff & Landlord with proof of ownership.

Thanks folks.

 

The landlord's bailiff showed me his badge and I have no doubt that he was legitimate. I haven't any issue with the action taken by the landlord as he had been very patient with us for many months.

 

On the day, I asked the bailiff 'What do you need from me' and he said 'nothing', I asked if he needed me to sign anything and he said 'no, nothing'.

 

I suffer from severe depression and didn't want to wait around while they looted my business of 8 years but I didn't expect everything to be taken - I'm suprised they left the paintwork!

 

When I went back the landlord was there (by chance) so, after he had stopped having a go at me for removing my CCTV cameras and selling them to pay for my kids school fees, I asked him what had happened to the post (including a cheque from a supplier and CC papers) and the water coolers. He said he'd have to ask as he had no idea, now I have chased him up he has no recollection of even speaking to me about it.

 

Surely there has to be a record of what was taken and then the subsequent realisation value at auction/sale? And surely taking the post should just not have happened?

Hello GreyH.

 

I take it you have / had a lease ?

 

If so, I'm afraid you're not in a good position re seized goods.

 

The only people with any chance of seeing the goods you don't own (water cooler, leased equipment etc) are the owners themselves, who will have to take up the issue directly with your landlord.

 

Was the lease assigned to a LTD company?

 

Were the leased goods assigned to a ltd company?

The bailiff CANNOT simply remove goods without leaving a Notice of Seizure. This will be a record of items removed. Without this document it would appear to be "irregular seizure".

 

Have to checked to see whether the bailiff is actually certificated?
