a few months ago I received two letters from the London compliance centre they had my address but the name on them was not mine I returned them unopened saying not known at this address, yesterday I received two more letters with the same name on them this time I opened one to find out what they were about, they were some sort of demand for payment of 800.00pounds, I phoned a number on the letter and was told if I get any more to send them unopened marked return to sender, my worry is am I going to get ballifs at my door. is there anything I can do to stop getting these letters.

There isn't anything that you can do to prevent them sending these letters and there is a risk that bailiffs could attend.
You are not the liable person and the liable person does not live there. Even if bailiffs do attend they still cannot gain entry unless you invite them in and even if you do they cannot take anything that does not belong to the debtor.
That said, it probably is worth taking action here because somebody is obviously using your address. They could be lots of explanations for that as there are lots of scams in the UK. One may be just that your address has been used. Another may be an identity theft issue. I would report it to the police. They will not do anything but you will get a report number which will assist you if in the future you need to defend any allegations arising from this person's actions.
If you do receive further correspondence then keep sending it back with a covering letter explaining that this person does not and has never lived as your address.
You might want to check your credit report as well. The indebted house is a bit of a myth but it is worth checking that this person is not on your credit rating as an associated person because it will have an impact then.
Can I clarify anything for you?
