This book is written for legal practitioners and others advising those facing enforcement of debts by bailiffs. It describes the rights of the bailiff, the “distrainor” and of the debtor, the “distrainee”.

Contents include:

  • The Law of Distress- This law is widely used by landlords and local authorities yet few practitioners understand it fully;
  • The Practice of Distress- pre-levy tactics, insolvency, Bailiffs rights and wrongful distress, the procedure from issue to charges;
  • Remedies- complaints to creditors and bailiffs
Also covered is the impact of the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007 including:
  • an online certificated bailiff register allowing debtors to check bailiffs' certification status
  • an extension to the certification process to ensure that all bailiffs provide a Criminal Records Bureau check with their application
  • minimum training requirements and competences for inclusion in the certification process.
