DCBL Bailiffs Under Scrutiny

Can’t decide whether an IVA (Individual Voluntary Arrangement) is right for you? Take a look at our article below to help you make an informed decision.

After the controversial television show, DCBL Bailiffs have been under scrutiny. While the bailiffs were photographed with a film crew, the clips aired on the show didn’t always represent the true nature of DCBL operations. Many of the clips were disturbing and inaccurate, demonstrating the show’s faulty narrative and selective editing. DCBL has since removed all of the clips, and they have updated their website with profiles of each of the bailiff agents.

Fees charged by DCBL bailiffs

The Taking Control of Goods (Fees) Regulations 2014 outline the charges that DCBL bailiffs can make. These fees can vary, depending on the nature of the baliff action, and can range from PS75 for a simple letter to PS235 for a visit to a business premises. If you want to know exactly what these charges will be, you can contact TAD, the Debt Advice and Defence League, which offers free debt advice.

Debt collection agencies can use questionable tactics to collect debts. For example, some call center staff are given bonuses or commission to collect debts. Others may harass and threaten customers. It’s important to understand your rights, and know when to report any abusive tactics. DCBL bailiffs should not approach you more than three times. If you do receive multiple visits from bailiffs, they can take further legal action.

Debt recovery companies often use the same tactics as bailiffs, but are not legally allowed to enter a person’s home before a court order. Direct Collection Bailiffs Ltd, a national debt collection company, has a legal right to contact debtors for their clients. They can also repossess items and execute county court orders. It’s important to understand that DCBL bailiffs don’t have the authority to enter your home before a court order has been issued. To avoid any problems with DCBL bailiffs, you should use the website of the organisation.

Seizures of goods

The DCBL was one of the most popular programs on Channel 5, with 4.5 million viewers every week. The show followed two Enforcement Agents who conducted seizures and evictions of debtors. The two former employees of the DCBL have filed a complaint against the company. They allege that the bailiffs did not follow the proper procedures to seize their goods. This episode highlights their claims.

The HCEO has the right to enter the debtor’s property and sell his goods at auction. The seizure of goods is a way of forcing the debtor to pay the debt. Enforcement can be via a County Court judgment transferred to the High Court, or a warrant for distraint a debtor from commercial property. HCEO and Certificated Bailiffs may choose to seize goods and sell them, but the debtor must sign a document acknowledging that he will not remove them.

During the investigation, the agents found “power tools of low value” in a Summerhill Road lock-up. These tools were listed on the CGA, but the seizure was unlawful. Furthermore, the seizure of the power tools was based on a seizure of the keys and not on the content of the goods. In other words, the seizure was based on the fact that the keys were found at the premises.

Threatening bankruptcy

If you’re under pressure from a debt collection company like DCBL Enforcement, it may be time to seek help. This company can exert too much pressure, bully you, and bombard you with calls. It’s no wonder so many debtors are experiencing sleepless nights. In fact, up to 50% of them are even considering suicide. Debt solutions can put an end to DCBL Enforcement’s relentless contact.

If you’re facing a DCBL bailiff in the mail, you should know that they can take payment online. You can find this information on letters you’ve received from DCBL or from the person who answers the phone. To make payments online, you’ll need to enter your reference number and postcode. Be sure to check that the person is real before giving out your credit or debit card information. The Office for Fair Trading has strict guidelines on this.

If you’re not able to pay off your debts, DCBL bailiffs can escalate the problem to court action. High court enforcement officers can be sent to enforce a judgement that’s recorded on your credit record for six years. Once the bailiffs have the court order in hand, they may decide to visit you or seize your property. Regardless of the method they choose, DCBL bailiffs are not afraid to pursue bankruptcy.
