The Bailiff’s powers are limited by law
If a bailiff is demanding money from you, then help is at hand!
The Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007 (Schedule 12) section 68 says:
(1) A person is guilty of an offence if he intentionally obstructs a person lawfully acting as an enforcement agent.
(2) A person is guilty of an offence if he intentionally interferes with controlled goods without lawful excuse.
(3) A person guilty of an offence under this paragraph is liable on summary conviction to—
(a) imprisonment for a term not exceeding 51 weeks, or
(b) a fine not exceeding level 4 on the standard scale, or
Q: Does that means you can’t challenge a bailiff in any way, shape or form?
A: Not necessarily!
I understand how distressing a visit from a bailiff can be and how frightened, confused and angry it can make you. When bailiffs come to your door demanding immediate full payment for parking, council tax or County Court Judgements, you need accurate, independent, non-biased information and assistance straight away.
If a Bailiff is knocking on your door and demanding money then I can help if the demand is for:
Note, I do NOT provide help, information or advice on the following:
- Magistrates court fines (eg speeding, no car tax, no insurance, no TV licence, unpaid train fares, etc)
- Water / gas / electricity
- Child Support Agency
- Business Rates
Evidence from local Citizens Advice Bureaux shows that many private bailiffs already act almost as a law unto themselves, with devastating effects on people’s lives. Intimidation, harassment and excessive fee charging by bailiffs are commonplace, driving already vulnerable people deeper into poverty and debt.
An analysis of 500 case reports from Citizens Advice Bureaux in England and Wales since October 2006 found that:
- 64% of bailiffs were guilty of harassment or intimidation
- 40% misrepresented their powers of entry
- 25% threatened debtors with imprisonment
- 42% charged excessive fees
What’s more people just aren’t aware of their rights and bailiffs can take advantage of this. Find out how to beat the bailiffs by taking my advice, learning what the bailiffs can take and whether bailiffs can take your car.
“A huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders”
“Not only did John manage to make the magistrate’s distress warrant null and void for two motoring offences, the added bonus was that both the convictions themselves were also made null and void. A huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders now.
With bailiff costs of over £560 John saved me a small fortune.
If you’re having problems with bailiffs then the FIRST person you should speak to is John Galt. Thank you very much!”

If you’ve just been visited or called by a bailiff, you need affordable, professional help so that you can resolve the matter quickly and effectively by ensuring that the bailiff’s actions and charges are lawful, justifiable and proportionate.
Many times and in many cases, I have found exemptions and unlawful, unjustifiable and disproportionate charging by bailiffs threatening to remove your goods. There are many exemptions making bailiff actions inappropriate.
A few examples are:
- You need your essential items returned so that you can continue to trade.
- You have no capacity to pay due to being on state benefits.
- You are too ill, infirm or incapacitated to go about your daily business.
- You are on certain medication
- The items that have been taken away or disabled were not yours.
If you have had a bailiff in your home or a Notice of Enforcement pushed through your letterbox then BEFORE YOU CALL THE BAILIFF TO PAY HIM, CALL ME FIRST!
“I Saved £267 in Bailiff Fees”
“Not only have I saved £267 in bailiff ‘fees’, but my fine was reduced by a further £250 at the court. In total I saved over £500 and had the bonus of having to break the bad news to the bailiff. A real shame indeed!
Folks, just give John a call and see if he can help you; I’m glad I did!”

I’ve been where you are now and I can help you
My name is John Galt and the buck stops with me. My mobile number is 07909 588 519. I’m personally responsible and accountable for running this business. I’ve been where you are now and I can help you.
I don’t aspire or pretend to be a solicitor, a barrister or any kind of legal representative and I don’t go to court for you. I’m just an average Joe who has been hammered by bailiffs in the past. I learned everything I could by reading and researching bailiff law, sitting in on court cases and I’ve even spent time with bailiffs actually on the job, i.e. going with them to see what they do and how they do it. I know what goes on in bailiffs’ heads, what drives them and what motivates them. I also know what goes on in defaulter’s heads, what drives them and what motivates them.
This width and depth of my experience enables me to be an experienced, competent consultant to you for all your bailiff problems.
My once only fee
My fee for bailiff mediation is a once-only £125 regardless of how much work needs to be done (no VAT is chargeable). If your case later becomes an official court complaint and you are subsequently awarded financial damages by a judge, you keep all of it – I don’t want a cut.
By paying me £125, you get the services of an experienced specialist, an expert who takes personal pride in his success rate and who takes immediate action at all hours of the day and at any day of the week. I’m not kidding, you hire me at 8pm, you’ll have the work done by 10pm. Once I’ve been paid, I couldn’t give a monkey’s about Sundays or bank holidays – I just do the work.
I am so confident about my ability that I offer a money-back guarantee: If I can’t reduce your bailiff bill by more than my fee to you, then I will refund you the money you paid me – as long as you haven’t lied to me about your situation.

My “Can’t Lose” Guarantee To You
Because of my high success rate, I’m able to offer this money-back guarantee: “If I can’t reduce your bailiff bill by more than my fee to you, then I will refund your money” (as long as you haven’t lied to me about your situation).
If it works out, you’ll have no bailiff in your life. If it doesn’t work out, I’ll refund you.
As there’s no risk for you, why not pick up the phone and call me for a free, no-obligation chat?
We will discuss where you stand now, what options are open to you and whether there are grounds for cancelling the warrant.
Let me get matters to a satisfactory conclusion for you, allowing you to carry on with your normal day-to-day life.
From my first-hand personal experience, I fully understand the procedure within bailiff enforcement firms and also the anxiety, worry and stress that being visited by a bailiff can place on members of the public and their families.
This enables me to give you the most informed specialised knowledge possible within this field. I am not purporting to be a solicitor or any other type of lawyer; I am a specialist consultant who will provide you with a premium-grade, start-to-finish service at a fixed price, no matter how much work I may need to do.

Why use me and not a solicitor?
In their snotty, condescending letters to you, the bailiff companies and the councils will strongly discourage you from using me and to strongly encourage you to use a solicitor instead.
That’s because they KNOW that you don’t HAVE the £200 per hour to hire a solicitor.
They also know that an appointment with the CAB may take 3-4 weeks, by which time the bailiff would have taken your car without a warrant, then sold it at a fraction of its market value, all with the full legal, financial and social backing of the council who hired them.
Strange how they are so concerned about your financial and legal well-being, isn’t it?
Even stranger is how they take great pains to specifically point out NOT to use ME in particular-
(1) why would they say this?
(2) would you take advice from your enemy on their preferred choice of spokesman for you?
THEY want to be the top dog in the prison and for you to just bend over and give in to every single one of their demands.
Well, you don’t have to give in – Call me on 07909 588 5199 and tell me your situation.
Solicitors charge by the hour (about £200+ VAT or more). I charge a flat fee of £125 for the entire job.
Solicitors don’t offer a money back guarantee. Win or lose, you have to pay them. My services are guaranteed: if I can’t save you more than £125, you get your money back.
Solicitors usually don’t have experience of the ins-and-outs of bailiff law. I do. It’s my speciality.
No solicitor I know has been out on the job with bailiffs to see first-hand what they do and how they do it.
