Enforcement Officer letter for my son

3 months ago - Posted by

My 27yr old son has recently moved back home with me (1 week ago exactly) I returned home today to find an Enforecement Officer letter for removal of goods..
My son owns nothing in my home apart from the clothes he came with.
Will they be able to take my goods to pay off his debt..?

Hi Carole.

I am sorry to hear about your difficulties.

You will be glad to hear, however, bailiffs can only gain entry into your home normally if you give them entry or leave a door unlocked. They cannot normally force entry or push by you, so until your son can get this matter resolved, it may be worth keeping doors locked.

They also cannot take items that do not belong to the debtor, although you may have to show what is your son’s and what is not his. As it’s your home and he has only recently returned, there should be a strong presumption most of the items in the home are yours.

However, to get the threat lifted your Son does need to address his debt problems. If you can get him to give us a call on the number below we can advise and assist him.
