Bristow and Sutor – How They Work

Whether you are a debtor or a creditor, understanding what a Bristow and Sutor Debt Collection company is and how they work is essential. There are different methods and regulations for each debt collection agency and understanding how the process works can help you make a more informed decision about dealing with them.

Bristow and Sutor are a debt collection agency, specialising in collecting debts owed to local authorities. They also offer debt chasing for businesses and benefits. They work across England and Wales. Bristow and Sutor’s chief executive is Andy Rose, who has been in the business for over 30 years. He is supported by Andrew Vaughan, who has worked in tech-enabled businesses. BB Shelf 4 LLP, which has a major interest in Bristow and Sutor, owns more than 75% of the company.

When a debtor does not pay a debt, the debt collector will usually seek a County Court Judgement (CCJ). The CCJ outlines the debt details, and specifies why the debtor is not paying the debt. A bailiff can then enter the debtor’s home to collect goods or to chase council tax. If the debtor fails to pay, Bristow and Sutor will take further action and cancel the repayment plan. If the debt is over 18, they can apply for a prison sentence.

If a debtor has been issued with a bailiff notice, they should urgently contact Council Tax Advisors. This is a free service provided by the council that offers advice and information. They can also arrange to have the debtor’s property removed. If the debtor does not respond to the enforcement notice, Bristow and Sutor can take further action and seize goods. A debtor who is unable to pay may be forced to sell their property to cover the debt.

If the debtor cannot afford to pay, they can ask the debtor to pay their debt through an Insolvency Practitioner. This can help the debtor to consolidate the debt into a single monthly payment. This is typically for five years, and payments are based on the debtor’s income and essential expenditure.

Bristow and Sutor’s enforcement agents follow a strict set of rules when collecting debts. They are required to give seven days’ notice before making their first visit to a debtor’s home. They are not permitted to climb windows or enter through doors. They also have limited rights of entry into business premises. The debtor’s possessions are seized under a Controlled Goods Agreement, which gives them power to seize goods and possessions to be sold at auction.

In addition to taking control of goods, Bristow and Sutor’s enforcement agents are also permitted to repossess vehicles and to take possession of assets. They can also apply to the court to extend the Taking Control of Goods (TCG) process. These are all procedures that are carried out in line with the CIVEA Code of Practice for Civil Enforcement.

Bristow and Sutor employs enforcement agents, also known as bailiffs, to collect debts on behalf of local authorities. These agents have the power to repossess property, take possession of vehicles and take benefits.
