I have been informed that up here in Scotland, we do not have Bailiffs.

I have been looking online trying to find out who we have instead of Bailiffs, as surely that means if we don't pay debts, then there is not much they can do if they can't send Bailiffs.

 

Can someone clear this up for me?

 

Thanks!

Regards

Kieran

We have sheriff officers and messenger-at-arms who fulfill the same function as English bailiffs and process servers.

 

A Messenger-at-Arms is an officer of the Court of Session which is the supreme civil court in Scotland. A Messenger-at-Arms can travel anywhere in Scotland and can serve documents and enforce court orders of the supreme court.

 

 

A Sheriff Officer is an officer of the regional civil court. Scotland is geographically divided into six sheriffdoms and 49 local sheriff court districts. Unlike a Messenger-at-Arms, a Sheriff Officer can only operate in the geographical area for which he holds a commission.

Messengers-at-Arms & Sheriff Officers are employed within private business partnerships with fees charged being regulated by government statute.
