Bailiff charges council tax

Paddy O'Brien made this Freedom of Information request to Manchester City Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Manchester City Council should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Manchester City Council,

In respect of bailiff charges:

1 - If a bailiff visits a property for the first time and is in possession of three liability orders, can he charge a visit fee of 24.50 x 3, or can he only charge 24.50?

2 - If a bailiff manages to levy on a vehicle and also manages to gain entry to a property on one visit, is he entitled to charge a levy fee in addition to a walking possession fee? Presumably the debt is secured by virtue of either..... is this correct?

3 - If a bailiff visits a property and contact is made and the circumstances of question one apply ie more than one liability order is outstanding, can the bailiff add a walking possession fee to each outstanding liability order or is it limited to one charge of 12.00?

4 - If the bailiff has received more than one liability order, but has already visited on one and is making a visit in relation to a latter received liability order, can he apply a walking possession fee or a levy fee to the liability order he previously conducted a visit on?

Yours faithfully,
NZ

Manchester City Council
