Bailiffs collect unpaid debts when local councils find themselves being owed money that's not been paid. A bailiff is instructed to collect a debt on their behalf. Bailiffs deliver paperwork on behalf of the council or creditor.
Bailiffs can only take goods if you let them into your home.
Bailiff Rescue strongly advises to not let them in at all but even if you do, Bailiffs can't take everything.
• Certified bailiffs cannot take protected items such as clothing, bedding, your fridge, cooker or any other household goods, which is needed for you and your family's basic needs.
• No tools of trade, vehicles or items which you need to carry on working.
•Anything that is attached to a wall.
•Children's clothes and playthings. However, bailiffs can remove children's bikes.
Certified Bailiffs are required to attend your property between sunrise and sunset if they are collecting rent arrears.
Bailiffs collecting other types of debt are simply required to call at a reasonable hour, which is generally considered to be between 06:00 and 21:00
Sundays and bank holidays are days upon which bailiffs are not allowed to call unless they have permission to do so from the court.
You are well within your rights to make complaints about bailiffs if they have not acted in a professional manner or if they have broken the law.
Your first port of call is to speak to the creditor who instructed the bailiff. This is most likely to be your local authority or the County Court.
It's possible the bailiff has been employed by a private company. In this case, you should send you complaint to that company. Bailiffs usually belong to a trade association and these have set complaints procedures that you can follow.

You can also take the bailiff to court if you wish. You can apply to have the bailiffs certificate removed if the bailiff took too many goods away than was actually necessary to pay off your debt. It is generally considered negligence if your goods are sold at less than the second hand value or the goods are damaged.
