Bailiffs are now known as Enforcement Agents (from 6 April 2014). The Government changed the way Enforcement Agents operate and collect debts. These changes aim to:

  • create an open, transparent and sustainable process;
  • protect the vulnerable against what is often seen as aggressive bailiff methods;
  • reduce physical door step activity with the Enforcement Agent;
  • and have fixed and clear fees.
