Contact Us When Dealing with bailiffs
Dealing with bailiffs can be very stressful often leaving you unsure of where to turn for advice and guidance. Commercial bailiffs who are usually instructed by local authorities to collect council tax arrears will often send you numerous letters and usually will visit you at your property.
It is important to note that if you receive a knock at your door that you do not open it, ask through the door, a window or the letterbox who it is and the purpose of their visit. If they say they are calling on behalf of the council, another body or authority ask them to post any correspondence they have through the letter box and contact Action Credit Management on 03000 111 777, we are experts at dealing with bailiffs and can usually stop enforcement action within 24 hours.
