Enforcement Agents

Enforcement Agents have another name you may be more familiar with, your friendly neighbourhood Bailiff. They are assigned by the court to visit your home to recover debts in the form of money or goods.

We at TRDG will show you how to handle these guys legally. Search Bailiff in the search bar to find some of our key articles, guides and tips.


Using property as the example, equity is the difference between the amount owed on your property and your property market value.

Here’s an example:

If your property is valued at £300,000 and you owe £250,000 on your property, your equity is £50,000.
