Lots of

right and wrong opinions here about what a bailliff is, can do.. whether they should or should not be this, that or the other...

The point of the story here tho... and I have to agree totally with Tim's first post..,. whether these bikers said:

"excuse me, we'd very much appreciate you not bidding on these items"

or

"If you so much as look at this stuff we'll break your fucking knees cunt!"

This was intimidation.. nobody's gonna do any bidding after that are they??  ..really?

Not a particularly 'lovely' story at all!

rugbyman court

so did i.spend lots of time in the courts...many years in fact in a city.If  a court issue a warrant or order then that person enacting becomes a bailiff for that purpose as he has the protection of the court in that instance...tomorrow he may be a normal debt collector...no confusion at all....for some ie a distress warrant(this is the only one that must be in their possesion) then its a court bailiff and if you refuse entry the police will assist them,by law...the police are present to prevent a breach of the peace only but will also ensure that certain items are not removed...ie cooker/beds/bedding/tools  etc

agreed the system is not perfect. Many companies will not spend the time chasing 'debts' and pass them on to debt recovery firms as these firms add on their own, often exorbitant, charges.
Those companies often have no details of what the debt is or records of how they arose. It's just a matter of 'this is what we are told you owe'
No need for a company to get a court to authorise it.
But from the OP the Bailiffs had taken possession of goods, that can only be done with a Court order (CCJ or similar) so the fact that money was owed must have been proven to the satisfaction of a judge.
Whether or not there was any intimidation is mute, the complainant could request that the bailiffs return and re-seize the goods. The angel could do the same trick again, ad infinitum until the debt and costs were paid off.

Glad yours turned out OK as I said Nina should have just said check your facts - see you in court. I'm sure bully boy tactics wouldn't faze her, She's married to you :tongue:







Just so we don't start WWIII. that was a joke :winkie:. I know how touchy some people can be on this forum:blink:

There are Court Bailiffs, Certified Bailiffs & Private Bailiffs, but all need to have had training. No reason why a private debt collector could not also be a bailiff and certificated by a judge as such

I could not be made a bailiff by a judge just to recover a debt owed to me unless I was able to prove to the judge that I had sufficient knowledge of the laws of distress

And, as you point out, any bailiff recovering goods would have to be directed to do so by a court
