Maidstone Borough Council
Freedom of Information Act Request
Request and Response
Does your enforcement agent contract allow your enforcement agents to
issue an indemnity against prosecution for themselves without the
agreement of the council in cases where they have wrongfully seized
and to vulnerable people
N/A - we are not currently in any contracts.
Have you ever allowed bailiffs to make their own settlement agreements
where goods have to be returned?
Would you allow enforcement agents to breach the equalities act if it
meant your business rates were collected.
How would you react if they did this without you knowing?
The matter would be fully investigated.
Would you class a secret indemnity which achieves a gain at the cost to
the vulnerable victim a material breach of contract .
The matter would have to be fully investigated.
Must enforcement agents always report failed levies and a full report
when dealing with vulnerable customers
We need clarification on ‘failed Levies’. We would expect a report for customers
identified as vulnerable.
