Bailiffs will be banned from entering homes at night and from using physical force against debtors under new laws coming into effect this weekend to clean up the industry.
Aggressive bailiff activity is unacceptable and it is high time that the cowboys out there are stopped from giving the rest of this important industry a bad name.
That’s why we are stamping out bad practice and making sure bailiffs play by the rules. Those who don’t will be banned.
People will still have to face up to their debts, but they will no longer need to fear their home being raided at night, the threat of violence or having their vital household equipment seized.
