  • Removal Notice

    Hi,
    I have had an enforcement officer serving me a removal notice in relating to an outstanding debt registered at Northampton County Court. Problem being it is for my son who no longer lives at my address. Debt type is TMA.
    After explaining this to the Enforcement Agent he replied that he did not believe me and he would return to take goods from my property unless I could provide receipts as proof of ownership!
    Company on heading is Collect services.
    Please advise/help.

    What is debt type TMA?

    Have they had access to your property? Is there anything of value outside? They may only remove goods that belong to the debtor and in any case most household goods are exempt or of little value.

      This is all a bluff on his part. He wants you to pay your son's debts, obviously, and he's trying to scare you.

      As Plod says, the EOs can only take stuff belonging to the debtor, and in practice the only things worth taking are high value electronics or a car. Whilst none of us keep the receipts for everything in the house, a lot of electrical items are bought online so you have proof of purchase. Likewise with the car, you can probably prove you paid for it.

      Personally, I'd refuse to show him any receipts, and just face him down, but it's up to you. For example, he pays for a transporter to take the car, and I claim it back later, leaving him well out of pocket. He won't take that risk.

      He may threaten to take other household items, but they are not worth anything secondhand, even if it's legal for him to take them.
