Can bailiffs not turn up

Post by Abs89 » 14 Dec 2017 21:16

Hi I was sue to move into a house tomorrow and the bailiffs were suppose to come get the guy out today. It's all gone through court we had a date and time and I've waited from 8:30 this morning till 7 tonight for them to turn up Sat outside in the rain on behalf of the landlord as he's away. Can they do that and not turn up?

The landlord may be in breach of contract, and the bailiff may be in breach of contract with the landlord.

You need an expert on landlord/tenant law.
I am a paralegal working for solicitors bringing proceedings against bailiffs for non-compliant enforcement action.
