Scottish Bailiffs

Scottish Bailiffs are better known as Sheriff Officers and it is their job to serve and enforce court orders from the Scottish courts. The courts can enforce a variety of different situations, but predominantly deal with debt recover and evictions.

Scottish Bailiffs can work either on a self-employed basis or for a firm that employs Sheriff Officers. Regardless of their employment situation, they are bound by a set of rules and legalities that must be strictly adhered to. Understandably, dealing with Scottish bailiffs can be an emotional experience as it usually involves a difficult financial or emotional process, but their presence can be avoided if you contact us.

We could provide you with an alternative financial arrangement by restructuring your debts, and we also offer tips and advice on what to do when a Scottish bailiffs becomes involved in proceedings. Contact us now and see how we can help you to make your situation easier.

Scottish Officers Fees 

The Scottish Officers are employed by the courts on behalf on clients seeking an end to a drawn out process. For example, the courts can act on behalf of individuals, companies, local councils and more, to retrieve an unpaid debt.

The Scottish Officers act out the ruling of the courts, but they also add on their own fees to the outstanding amount. These fees vary considerably, but any form of contact from a Scottish bailiff like a letter, a phone call, or a visit in person adds on additional fees. If you are in a precarious financial situation already then additional fees are the last thing that you want.

An official list of fees can be found here; http://www.scottishciviljusticecouncil.gov.uk/docs/librariesprovider4/news/sheriff-officers-fees.pdf?sfvrsn=2

In order to stop these kinds of fees being added on, it is vitally important that you speak to someone about the original debt. If you are uncomfortable with the idea of speaking to the Sheriff-Officers themselves, get in touch with us and together we can see if there is an alternative solution for you.

In addition to helping thousands of people to restructure their debts into something more manageable, we are also an experienced debt collecting firm. Because of this, we understand better than most what a traumatic experience it can be. Contact us and let us steer you in the right direction and avoid any additional Scottish Officers fees being added to your outstanding debts.

Scotland Sheriff Officers Near Me

Scotland’s Sheriff Officers have the difficult task of enforcing court orders. In an ideal situation, Sheriff-Officers would not be needed, but unfortunately there are multiple situations where their presence is required.

If a Scottish Bailiff is introduced to a situation, it usually means that all other attempts at trying to resolve the situation to that point have failed. Sheriff-Officers are the last option that a debtor may feel that they have left in order to retrieve what is rightfully theirs.

If Sheriff-Officers are involved, it’s still not too late to do something about it. A restructuring of your finances or seeing if a deal can be reached with the debtors may stop the need for their further involvement. There are a variety of different financial options available and we are confident that we can find a solution that leaves you, the creditors and the Sheriff-Officers happy.

Powers of Sheriff Officers in Scotland

The powers of Sheriff Officers in Scotland are bestowed upon them by the courts. Many people believe that they have the same authority as the police, but this isn’t true. Scottish bailiffs have rules that must be followed just like the police force but they are limited to what they can enforce. The powers of Sheriff-Officers in Scotland include;

  • If they are going to attempt to enter your property then they must give you notice (otherwise known as diligence). This is usually two weeks but can be as little as 48 hours.
  • They can only enter your property between certain hours of the day and you generally have to be there at the time. They can only enter your property at other times and without your presence under exceptional circumstances.
  • If they do need to force entry they need a special warranty from the courts.
  • They can repossess items, evict tenants, violent people or children they believe to be in danger.

Each individual circumstance is different but these are rules that apply to all situations.
