My name isXXXXX and I'm happy to help with your question today. I need to ask you some preliminary questions to be able to help you.
Presumably the judgment had to be enforced because you did not pay it?
Even if you pay the claimant directly the bailiffs fee will have to be paid. The fee essentially becomes part of thr debt. If its not paid thr bailiff will keep calling and trying to sieze goods.
In that case the bailiff will not be able to collect. The bailiff can only seize goods/property belonging to the defendant company. It is unlawful to take property belonging to anybody else.
No. That's incorrect. Only goods/property belonging to the debtor can be seized. If they take your property then you can sue them and claim compensation. The company is a legal entity - if its owns property then its property can be seized. If doesn't own property then nothing can be taken. The bailiff will, of course, try and take something because he wants to be paid (and they're very persistent) but you have to tell them clearly and firmly that the company doesn't own anything.
You should not have signed the WP. Your only recourse now is to complain.
