a bailiff is coming to my house tomorrow to enforce a judgement debt. i have been on line and found that i can apply to the court for a payment plan using a form N245. if i return the form today, will that prevent the bailiff from enforcing tomorrow?

I prefer to talk here

Thanks for the information

Strictly speaking, a bailiff can still enforce even if you have applied for a variation order to allow you to pay in instalments.

However, generally speaking they will not.

If he does return then just don't let him in and make sure your vehicle is secured in a garage or parked many streets away.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.
