I have a warrant of execution threatening Bailiff action to remove goods from my house will bankruptcy stop it?
Yes it will, as Bailiff activity is reported on the online bankruptcy application and the Official Receiver will be aware if it. Even so, you would need to take immediate action, as there is a delay between submitting the case online and it being dealt with by the OR. A warrant of execution usually arises when a monthly payment for a County Court Judgement has been missed and County Court sheriffs visit for collection.
If the warrant was for unpaid Council Tax following the issue of a Liability order by the Council, there is some doubt as to whether even a bankruptcy would stop the action. Bailiffs collecting Council Tax arrears are often allowed to continue collecting monthly payments during the 12 month bankruptcy period. However, we will do what we can to help with this.
