What should i do if i’m contacted?

If you are contacted by bailiffs, it’s important to take action quickly and seek advice to avoid further escalation of the situation. Here are some steps you can take:

  1. Don’t ignore the problem. It won’t go away and could make things worse.
  2. Contact the bailiff as soon as possible to try to negotiate a payment plan or to explain your circumstances. Be sure to keep a record of any communications.
  3. Seek advice from a free debt advice service, who can provide guidance on your options and how to deal with bailiffs.
  4. Check that the bailiff is authorized to take action against you. You can do this by requesting to see their identification and proof of their authority.
  5. If you dispute the debt, you may be able to challenge it. You should seek legal advice or contact the court that issued the warrant.
  6. If you are struggling to pay the debt, you may be able to apply for a debt relief order, bankruptcy, or an individual voluntary arrangement (IVA).

Remember, it’s important to act quickly and seek advice as soon as possible to avoid further action being taken by the bailiffs.
