Do debt collectors have the same powers as bailiffs?
The short answer is no. Debt collectors aren't court officials and don't have the same powers as bailiffs.
They can't enter your home or seize your possessions.
They can only write, phone or visit your home to talk to you about the debt and how to pay it back.
