Dukes Bailiffs

Whether you are owed money from a private company or public body, Dukes Bailiffs can help recover the money you owe. This is a family-run business with over 25 years’ experience in debt collection. They provide high court enforcement services, eviction of travellers and recovery of commercial rent arrears.

Dukes is a national debt collection agency that specialises in the recovery of debts for public and private companies. They can help recover unpaid invoices, business rates, Council Tax and penalty charge notices. They also assist companies in obtaining County Court Judgments and High Court Enforcement.

Dukes is an enforcement agent that has a team of enforcement agents across the UK. These agents are authorised by the Ministry of Justice Lord Chancellor’s Department to enforce High Court Judgements. They can also recover local taxation debts, commercial rent arrears and forfeit commercial leases. They can also remove trespassers from land. Dukes can visit you at your home or business premises. However, they are only allowed to visit on certain days and they cannot visit on Good Friday and Sunday.

When you receive a letter from Dukes, you can either pay the debt or negotiate a payment plan. If you do not pay the debt within the specified time, you may be subject to further action from the enforcement agent. Dukes may also charge you disbursement fees. These fees cover the costs of locksmiths, advertising and auctioneer fees.

If you fail to pay the debt within the agreed time, the enforcement agent can cancel the repayment plan. Dukes Bailiffs can also visit you at home or business premises to seize goods. They are allowed to visit you multiple times during enforcement. However, they cannot remove cars that do not legally belong to you. They also can’t take cars with Blue Disabled Badge.

The debt collection industry is a huge one. There are many types of debt collectors, including credit card companies, banks and other financial institutions. Some are independent businesses. Others work for original creditor companies. The amount of fees that you will pay depends on the type of action taken. You can also avoid being harassed by debt collectors by seeking professional advice. If you feel that your rights are being violated, you can report them to the Office of Fair Trading.

Despite the new regulations introduced by the government, there are still issues with the debt collection industry. The OFT can revoke a debt collector’s license if they are displaying underhand practices or are not acting fairly. There are also a large number of complaints to the Financial Ombudsman, which has increased by more than 700 in the last year.

Dukes Bailiffs can be relentless and they may contact you several times. This can be very stressful, especially if you owe money to a company or public body. They can also threaten bankruptcy or you may be subjected to a County Court Judgement (CCJ). You have a right to ask for information about your debt before you take action.
