The Taking Control of Goods Regulations 2013
New regulations have taken effect from 6th April 2014. For further information on the changes in legislation and the new enforcement process please click here.
From the 6th April 2014 the Taking Control of Goods Regulations 2013 will be implemented. These new regulations will bring alterations to the existing law, charges and procedures that govern the recovery process for both Council Tax and Business Rates. There will now only be one set of charges and procedures presiding over the enforcement of all different debt types. Certificated Bailiffs will now be known as Enforcement Agents.
The recovery process will now consist of three stages:-
Compliance: We are now required to issue you, by mail, with a Notice of Enforcement, upon receipt of an Enforcement Power (Liability Order) instruction from the creditor. This provides an opportunity to resolve the matter with our offices, prior to a visit by an Enforcement Agent. For each Enforcement Power instruction issued during the compliance stage, a fee of £75 will be charged. Debt advice information and methods to pay are detailed on the reverse of the Notice you will receive. We wish to work with you to resolve this matter, so please do not let this stage pass without contact.
Enforcement: Following the compliance stage, if full payment or a satisfactory arrangement to pay has not been agreed, the case will be passed to an Enforcement Agent to visit the premises. This attendance will incur a fee of £235 (plus 7.5% of any debt amount over £1,500), and the Enforcement Agent will be required to collect full payment or take control of goods. Where the amount cannot be paid in full, the Enforcement Agent will attempt to enter into a Controlled Goods Agreement, whereby goods will be left at the premises subject to an arrangement to pay.
Removal & Sale: If full payment or a satisfactory payment agreement is not made, the Enforcement Agent may remove goods for sale at public auction. At this stage a further fee of £110 (plus 7.5% of any debt amount over £1,500) will be applied. The actual costs incurred from the storage and sale by auction of goods will also be recoverable from the debtor.
All payments in connection with this matter, must now be made to Reventus. Please click on the link below to make payment on your account online.
