Local authorities have already temporarily banned enforcement visits. This is mainly due to the fact that high court enforcement officers aren't considered to be key workers. However, legislation that was passed at the end of April came into force. It states that in-person enforcements visits from bailiffs etc are not allowed during the Coronavirus lockdown due to the risk of spreading the disease. This is also the case in Scotland where the equivalent Sherrif officer shave also had their duties restricted. Most cases in Scotland regarding this have been administratively adjourned to a date on or after 1 June 2020.

However, if you feel that you still require your missing invoices or funds to be paid then you are within your right to communicate with them through telephone and email. You can also appoint a debt recovery representative to also use these methods of recovery on your behalf. However, visits directly to people’s homes and businesses were temporarily ceased. However as the country is beginning to come out of lockdown then some of these measures may be lifted.
