Complain About a Bailiff Overcharging you

The fees you can be charged by most bailiffs are fixed and stated within The Taking Control of Goods (Fees) Regulations 2014. If your bailiff has charged you more than they are legally allowed to as stated in these regulations, you should make a complaint. We help you complain about a bailiff overcharging you with our letter template.

Complain to a Bailiff Company

If you want to make a complaint about a bailiff company for any other reason than overcharging you, we have a letter template for you. Whether it be aggressive behaviour, intimidating threats or repossessing items they are not legally allowed to take, use this letter template to complain about a bailiff company.

Complain to a Council About the Actions of their Bailiffs

If the council has sent bailiffs to recover debts relating to unpaid council tax or fines, and the bailiff did not act appropriately, you can use our bailiff complaint letter template and send it to the council. You might want to complain directly to the bailiff company as well (using the letter template above), but use this letter to make your concerns clear to your local authority as well.

Tell a Bailiff that You Are Vulnerable

Bailiffs must follow strict rules when dealing with vulnerable people. In some cases, they are not allowed to charge fees and cannot even visit the debtor at home. In the latter situation, they must hand back the responsibility of chasing the debt to the lender/company. 

You can now tell a bailiff that you are vulnerable with our free letter template. Use it yourself, or download it for someone you know is vulnerable and needs help dealing with enforcement officers.
