Appointing a City of London Bailiff to be present during a County Court possession.
This service can provide many benefits for the Landlord.
The County Court Bailiff will arrive on the designated time of possession, with a duty to get the warrant signed off once the property is secure and all the residents have left the premises.
If the Landlord cannot make the appointed time of possession or feels uncomfortable in doing so, we will act as, his on agent at the property. We will provide a professional locksmith and sitex if required, sign the warrant and assist the Court Bailiff in his or her duties.
We will also, conduct a thorough search of the premises, ensure the property is totally secure, act as key holder for the property and advise the neighbours to contact the police of any future attempted break in.
In cases where, the Landlord suspects that the evicted tenants may well attempt to break back in, we provide a 24/7 sit in security service with SIA approved dog handlers. Our rates for this service are very competitive and security is provided in the form of experienced fully certified security personnel.
If the Landlord permits the evicted tenants to re-enter the property to collect their left belongings (within the judges recommended seven day period after possession) we will conduct the on site re-entry with the appointment being made by the ex tenants via us.
Unclaimed goods of value can be sent to auction and all rubbish cleared by The City of London Bailiffs on the Landlord's request.
All costs are negotiable to the Landlords requirements.
