Why am I being contacted by Equita Bailiffs?

If you’ve been contacted by Equita Bailiffs via letter, call, or email, it’s probably regarding an unpaid bill or a breach of payment terms in an agreement with their clients. 

When Equita enforcement agents contact you, they may begin with a letter stating their intent to visit. This notice, called a notice of enforcement, should clearly detail the outstanding amount and your name and address. 

Ignoring this notice could lead to a bailiff visiting your home after seven days. 

While it’s distressing to deal with bailiffs, it is important to take their communication seriously. 

What actions can Equita Bailiffs take against me? 

It’s important to understand that bailiffs have more power than debt collectors when it comes to recovering unpaid debts. 

Typically, bailiffs’ step in after a creditor has taken legal action against you. With court authorisation, they can enter your home, take possessions, and sell them to pay off your debts. 

Additionally, bailiffs can add charges, including hefty fees and extra costs, for their services in debt recovery, making your financial situation even more challenging. 

What can Equita Bailiffs do? 

Equita typically gives you at least 7 days notice before their first visit, known as the compliance stage. You’re not usually required to open your door to a bailiff or allow them inside your home. 

Equita Bailiffs cannot enter your home: 

  • By force, for example by barging past you when you answer the door
  • If only children under 16 or vulnerable people 
(with disabilities, for example) are present
  • Between 9pm and 6am
  • Through anything except the door, so they can’t climb in through a window

If you do not let a bailiff in or agree to pay them:


  • They could take things from outside your home, for example your car, bike or van.
  • They will charge an enforcement fee.

What happens if I let Equita Bailiffs into my home? 

You should never allow a bailiff into your home. Once they gain peaceful entry, they can return and attempt to take your possessions. If you let them in, it can be challenging to get them to leave without taking your belongings. 

In some cases, they might even tow or clamp your vehicle, although exceptions apply if you use a blue badge, share ownership, or have a hire agreement. 

Equita Bailiffs have the authority to take various items from your home, including:

  • Your TV and any gaming consoles
  • Jewellery, ornaments, and antiques
  • Any cash you have on the premises
However, bailiffs cannot take:
  • Items necessary for your work, like tools, a computer, 
or a work vehicle
  • Essential items for living, such as your cooker, clothing, 
or fridge
  • Your children’s toys or household pets
