Is Newlyn High Court enforcement?

There are different kinds of bailiffs, including certificated enforcement agents who are also known as civil enforcement agents. There are also people who act as high court enforcement officers and county court and family court bailiffs. Bailiffs must usually give you at least seven days’ notice of their first visit.

Newlyn Enforcement Agents hold a certificate, granted by a judge at the county court, which permits them to carry out enforcement action against you. Previously known as a bailiff, an enforcement agent is certified by the court and their remit is perfectly legal, as long as they act within the bounds of the law.

How do you stop Newlyn bailiffs?

It’s most people’s worst fear: the visit by a bailiff to whip away their treasured possessions, such as their car, from their home. However, before you panic, you should know that you have rights. Bailiffs are only permitted to come to your home between 6 am and 9 pm.

If a bailiff arrives at your door, you can attempt negotiations by keeping them outside and speaking via the door or even the telephone. Bailiffs are permitted to enter through unlocked doors, which is known as a peaceful entry, so you may feel more empowered by ensuring outside doors are firmly locked. However, depending on the debt owed, the bailiff may have the right to force entry to your home with the help of a locksmith.

What is an IVA?

Depending on your circumstances you might be eligible to take out a Government approved scheme for reducing your monthly debt payments and writing off up to 90% of your debts at the end of the scheme. Your creditors have to agree and you must have more than £6000 of debt and enough income to be able to meet your new agreed payment. Read our guide to IVA’s for more details

Is an IVA worth it?

That’s going to depend on your individual circumstances and whether or not the various pro’s and con’s of an IVA are worth it for you. For most people who simply cannot carry on with debt that has become unmanageable, being able to reduce payments down to an agreed fixed amount that you can certainly afford, and at the end of the fixed period having the bulk of your debts written off is certainly worth it. However, careful consideration needs to be given to other solutions such as Bankruptcy, Debt Management Plans or Debt consolidation loans or mortgages. Everyone is different so you must put yourself and your needs first.

How does an IVA work?

An Individual Voluntary Arrangement, or IVA, is a formal, legally binding debt solution, which is a form of insolvency. It must be administered by a licensed Insolvency Practitioner. As an alternative to becoming Bankrupt, It allows you to potentially write-off up to 90% of your existing debts, based on what you can reasonably afford to repay. The exact amount will vary depending on your personal circumstances, and who you choose to arrange your IVA.
An IVA commits you to monthly repayments over 5 or 6 years, which are distributed among your creditors. Any debts remaining after this period will then be written off. The payments will take into account your monthly income to ensure that the IVA is realistic and affordable.
