Sources of Bailiff Law

Published: March 2012
Publisher: PP Publishing
Country of Publication: UK
Format: Paperback
Price: £36.00



Low stock.

Until reformed – long threatened but with no identifiable date yet - bailiffs’ law will remain multifarious governed by dozens of statutes and regulations and thousands of cases.

Were that not enough, the law is further complicated by its division into execution, common law distress and statutory distraint. This tripartite classification has practical consequences:-

  • There are differences in the personnel involved: civil court bailiffs, landowners and public bodies;
  • Differences in specific powers; and,
  • Differences in remedies for creditors and debtors.
As important as the differences listed are, and as much as they must be borne in mind, they can work as much to conceal similarities of procedure as to alert us to unique features. This book is organised into a chapter of statutes and then chapters dealing successively with the key stages of the enforcement process. Each source (statute or case report) is supplemented with a commentary discussing its significance and linking it with other sources quoted here or to other applications of the principles brought out.
