Hi Alex, Yes, they were from the high court, one was a bailiff and the other a sheriff
yes it is
You can raise a complaint using Form 4 procedure.
This form can be found at: http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/form-004-eng.pdf
The Court can decide whether they are a proper person to be a bailiff.
The Court can also Order that they repay you
But if it goes to Court and you lose, then you would be liable for their legal costs
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Form 4 refers to Distress for Rent – ours is not for rent but a Judgement obtained in the Central London CC – does this matter?
The form instructs sending the form to the county court – the bailiff came with a High Court Writ – does this matter?
Please confirm that form 4 is correct form.
1. Form 4 is the same form.
2. The County Court would have been where the writ came from in the first place
Does this help?
It does - thank you
Further to the matter above.
I have issued form 4 as advised.
The Sheriff has responded by saying that I have to make a “formal interpleader claim under RSC ORDER 17 – INTERPLEADER”. I have read this and believe rule 2 applies.
My question: is the a set court form which I can use?
