Bailiffs have no interest in vehicles that are owned by someone else, they are only able to take control of your goods. If their understanding is that it is your vehicle they will take reasonable steps to prevent the property being removed. If proof is provided that your partner is the owner of the vehicle they have no interest in it and should not prevent the vehicle being used. If you need assistance dealing with the debt the bailiffs are collecting then contacting a free debt adviser may help but your partner may need to take legal advice, instead of debt advice, if they wanted to take action against the bailiffs for preventing them from the use of their vehicle.
