The Government has published updated information for the public on what to do when bailiffs visit your home. It sets out how to deal with a bailiff, how to make payments, how to complain about a bailiff and where to get additional advice and support. The advice has been refreshed following requests by the advice and enforcement sectors as well as members of the public.

A formal government response to the consultation Transforming bailiff action: How we will provide more protection against aggressive bailiffs and encourage more flexibility in bailiff collections, will be published shortly.
