If they can't serve the papers to you personally, they will use other ways to proceed with your bankruptcy in your absence.
It just means that you won't have had the opportunity to challenge the process and it could therefore make things more difficult for you.
I am not quite sure what you hope might happen, if the bankruptcy is delayed a couple of months. Given the property has not sold in 4 years, it seems unlikely there is going to be a sudden change in fortune.
I would suggest that you obtain local advice about your current circumstances . Many Solicitors offer a free half hour consultation. There are local insolvency advisors. You need to understand why it may be better to cooperate with the process now, rather than avoid contact, hoping that delay is your friend.
In this situation, I think you are probably best to go through Bankruptcy. Otherwise you will have these debts coming back to haunt you for a very long time.
If some of the debts relate to gambling, I think you can self register that you have a problem and then gambling websites etc can refuse you accounts. Something you could look into.
The new enforcement regulations i believe stopped the enforcement officers from pushing aside someone at a door. This was to stop potential assault and breach of the peace.
They can put their foot in, to have the conversation with the fine defaulter about their rights of gaining entry and that they can force entry if required using a locksmith. But if they are refused entry they should back away and look at their next options. There might be goods outside of the house they can seize. If not, they could call the Police and locksmiths, so they can make peaceful entry to a property.
Complain to Courts and Marstons if the officer has used force against you at the door.
