Enforcement Agents

From 6 April 2014 a bailliff is known as an Enforcement Agent.

Hull City Council uses both its own Enforcement Agents, and separate Enforcement Agent companies, to recover money.

Once a debt is passed to the outside Enforcement Agents company for collection, the council cannot enter into any further arrangement for payment of that debt.

Instead, the Enforcement Agent will administer the case and will usually accept a reasonable payment offer. The Enforcement Agent will contact you directly and charge extra costs.

If the Enforcement Agent cannot collect the debt the case is returned to the council for further enforcement action.

For more information about our external Enforcement Agents see web links to the left.

Brief guide to Enforcement Agents fees

Under ‘The Taking Control of Goods (Fees) Regulations 2014’, Enforcement Agent fees are fixed by law and the costs cannot be reduced or waived.
If your debt is passed to an Enforcement Agent to collect the additional fees you have to pay are -

  • an immediate fixed compliance fee of £75.00 which will be added to your debt
  • if you still do not pay and an Enforcement Agent visits an additional fixed enforcement fee of £235.00 is added. For any debt over £1,500 costs are further increased by 7.5% of the amount which exceeds £1500
  • if you still do not pay and an Enforcement Agent removes goods additional costs of £110.00 are added. For any debt over £1,500 costs are further increased by 7.5% of the amount which exceeds £1500
