According to the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) there have been times when county court bailiffs and High Court Enforcement Officers (HCEOs) have turned up at the same address to evict a tenant, causing confusion over who has jurisdiction. I have to say that in all my years at The Sheriffs Office I have never come across this scenario, in fact the complete opposite – landlords give up waiting for the court bailiffs and seek the help of HCEOs.
I believe the real reasons are more to do with some courts not knowing the process and therefore simply refusing applications because they don’t understand it and, as I have previously written, “franchised” HCEOs who also do not understand the legal process and potentially carrying out illegal evictions.
Whatever the reason may be, I’m glad that the MoJ has now issued some guidance on this matter, but only time will tell if it has any effect.
