The golden rule when dealing with the bailiffs
Never give bailiffs access to your home or your belongings.
In simple terms: DON’T LET THEM IN.
Enforcement agents, or bailiffs, are determined and highly skilled at recovering the money owed to their clients. They hold court-appointed authority and a wealth of experience in pressuring you to repay what you owe.
Their preferred method is to add as much pressure as possible is by gaining access to your home. You must make it a priority to prevent them from getting through the door—so keep it closed and locked. The same goes for windows.
Once inside, you’ll find it almost impossible to get rid of them unless you agree to their terms. Also, if they don’t achieve the access they want, they can’t remove any of your belongings.

If NSL Task Enforcement have been employed or contracted to recover the money you owe to one of their clients, they are entitled to remove your belongings and sell them to pay towards your debt.
The types of items they can remove include TVs, electrical and electronic goods, luxury items, jewellery, antiques and also any cash you have.
They can’t take items you need for a basic standard of living. That includes your landline telephone and mobile, domestic appliances, clothing, food and heating and lighting devices.
For a complete list or to inquire about specific items, TAD is always available to answer your questions.
What happens to the goods NSL Task Enforcement take from you?
Before any goods are taken, they will be listed in a Controlled Goods Agreement. This list dictates the items that the bailiff will confiscate if you don’t make suitable steps to repay the outstanding money you owe.
In many cases, the threat of having property removed is enough to encourage the debtor to engage in repaying the debt.
In cases where the debtor refuses or isn’t able to engage, the goods will be removed and sold privately or by auction. The money raised will be used to pay towards the outstanding debt and the costs incurred to recoup it.
You can try to protect your belongings from being added to the Controlled Goods Agreement by removing them from your home before the bailiff’s visit. Also, the longer you can prevent access to your property, the longer it will take the bailiff to be able to make their list.
The best way to protect your goods is to take the correct steps to remove your debt. Talk to us to see if we can eliminate your debt or advise you of the best ways to repay it over an appropriate period.
What happens when NSL Task Enforcement want to take your car?
An enforcement agent has just as much right to take your car as they do your personal possessions.
Disabled drivers displaying a Blue Disabled Badge in their car are safe, as are owners whose vehicle is still under a hire purchase agreement.
The bailiff will often add your car to the Controlled Goods Agreement, allowing you to continue using it. However, if you fail to meet their requirements, they can clamp the car or remove it to be sold whenever they see fit.
You should never tamper with a vehicle clamp or interfere with the removal process. This is a criminal offence and could result in a prison sentence.
One tip we offer is to park your car on private property. A bailiff can only access your home and land, so parking in a neighbour’s or family member’s garage or driveway can protect your vehicle from being taken.
The fees an enforcement agent charge are high and will only add to your existing debt problem.
The enforcement notice you receive when the court passes your case to an enforcement agent is charged at £75, and the fee fixed for home and work visits is £235. These are only 2 of an extensive list of charges available to the enforcement agents.
All fees are dictated by the Taking Control of Goods Regulations 2014. There are many associated fees a bailiff can charge which you will also be responsible for. These include such things as advertising the sale of your belongings, repairing damage made to your property when gaining access, and employing the services of a locksmith.
The best way to prevent additional costs from developing is to deal with your bailiff and find a resolution appropriate to both parties. Talk About Debt can help you to negotiate the best deal within your financial means, limiting the amount of stress and worry.
