Thank you for your question.

English bailiffs have no jurisdiction in Scotland for any matter.

I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.

Thank you, that is very helpful. If we have a branch/depot in England do the bailiffs have jurisdiction in that depot?

Expert:  JGM replied 4 years ago.
Yes they do, if the company has a place of business in England then jurisdiction is established.
