Why are Marston Group Bailiffs contacting me?

Marston Group Bailiffs buy debts from government agencies and private companies. They pay less than the full value of the debt (sometimes as little as 20%) and in return, they become the owners of the debt and take action to ensure you pay.

If Marston Group Bailiffs have contacted you, it is probably because they have bought a debt you owe to a third party. They are very firm and proactive about collecting debts so it’s best to know your options and have a plan of action before you speak to them. Fees for processing the debt can increase rapidly, so it can be helpful to act quickly.

If you think there has been an error, it’s often useful to contact the company Marston says the debt originated from (for example, your local council for council tax) and verify all the details. The next step would be to write a letter formally disputing the debt.

If you do owe Marston Bailiffs money, there’s a good chance you have several options available to you. Your first option is simply to repay the debt if you can afford to do so. You may be able to arrange a repayment plan for some or all of the debt.

If you can’t afford to pay, or doing so would cause you financial hardship, there are other options including a Trust Deed, Independent Voluntary Agreement (IVA), or bankruptcy. If you live in Scotland, sequestration is basically the Scottish equivalent of bankruptcy. All of these options affect your total debt, not just the one Marston Bailiffs have contacted you about.
