Glossary

The Taking Control of Goods Regulations 2013 was introduced in 2014 and significantly changed the way in debts can be enforced by bailiffs.

One significant change has been to the ‘terminology’ used. For example; under the new regulations a ‘bailiff’ is now renamed an ‘enforcement agent’ and a ‘walking possession agreement’ is renamed a ‘controlled goods agreement’.
