    • I'm a little confused. You have told us that you served an SAR on 9 January and you have heard nothing other than acknowledgement until yesterday when they told you that there was going to be a delay. However, elsewhere you have told us that they contacted you and demanded a £10 fee. Please could you clarify this.   I see that you have made a complaint to the ICO.  The only problem is that since GDPR, the timescales for the ICO dealing with consumer complaints has increased catastrophically.   If you make a complaint to the ICO, you will have to break their arms in order to get a reference number and then eventually when you do, they will then inform you that after the issue of the reference number it will take anything from six weeks to 3 months before the complaint is even allocated to an investigator.   Before GDPR there was a much smaller level of complaint, you would normally get an email within six weeks expressing an opinion that such and such company were unlikely to have complied with their data protection obligations.   Personally I think the GDPR has backfired. I don't think it has changed anything other than opened a deluge of complaints to the ICO which because the ICO is under-resourced, has played into the hands of the companies because they are even less worried than before about complaints being made about them because by the time the complaint is looked at, the complainant is fed up or has forgotten about it and anyway, or the matter they are dealing with such as a complaint against a bank or against a utility company has moved on.

I am a rare poster but common reader and have shared my interest with a Gent i met through work who it transpired is a former Bailiff and high court Bailiff. He said that he found the enforcement profession (?) extremely hard to work in because of the company he worked for and would be happy to answer any questions people may have about the profession including training, salary etc etc if anyone is interested. It may help to clarify the negative impression people have of Bailiffs.

One rather obvious question:

Why do so many bailiffs have such difficulty in getting the charges correct ?

Why not get your friend to register on CAG, rather than go via yourself ? It would make it easier for both of you.


We could do with some help from you.

I'd be interested to understand why he found the industry a difficult place to work and whether this was down to moralistic issues, financial issues, pressure from managers and/or some other reasons.

Sorry for the late reply - he is not a friend as such but a colleague. I have passed the details to him and he said he knows of this website and will have a look. So you can direct your questions to him. He said he worked for a national company on c/tax and parking fines initially and said the wages were very good but the working hours were quite bad so he left to go to the biggest hceg company and he found the wages quite bad in comparison and the management and training non-existant so didnt really enjoy it - he said he didnt mind doing the job though and did it for about 6 months with each company.

 

I aked him about charges and he said that they were set by the company so he couldnt charge what he liked. He said that the higher bailiff company allowed him to charge five hundred pounds a visit and he got a percentage of this but he didnt really like charging people.

 

Hope this helps but he said he will join for questions.
