She is wearing a badge Marstons. I have googled it. It says it is a high court enforcer. Can I not at least request 24 hours (without further costs), do you think? In order that I can verify things etc. She says not, but of course their objective is to collect the funds quickly with minimal fuss. So I wondered if they are somewhat preying on people's naivety & fear of having a baliff on their doorstep.
If I refuse entry, can they legally get a locksmith here to let themselves in?
But, am I legally entitled to request a period of time (say 24 hours) - without further costs - to verify this request for money?
And my last question wasn't answered as I'd hoped, - are they legally allowed (via a locksmith) to let themselves in?
I have one final question. "Before" I pay, can I ask the enforcer (she has left her phone number) for the high court enforcement reference, and then check this online. I mean, of course I can ask, but do I have a legal right to verify this?
And do you know if this is even check-able online?
