Taking control: the need for fundamental bailiff reform

calendar14 March 2017

CAP has joined Advice UK, Money Advice Trust, StepChange, The Children’s Society and Z2K in releasing a report that calls for reform of current bailiff practices and independent regulation of the sector. This comes three years after the 2014 changes to bailiff law in England and Wales which has had limited success and is overdue for a review. The report suggests seven key recommendations for the bailiff industry, such as a clear complaints procedure, a fee structure that incentivises good practice, and better identification and protection of vulnerable people. The report details evidence of current problems with the industry and explores the benefits of further reform, see more here.
