11 debt and mental health organisations which make up the Taking Control campaign are calling on the government to establish an independent regulator to clean up the bailiff industry and protect people from the harm that poor debt collection practices cause.
Citizens Advice’s new figures show that regulation has significant public support. National polling, commissioned by Citizens Advice and StepChange Debt Charity, reveals:
- 8 in 10 people (83%) think that bailiffs should be subject to independent regulation.
- Almost 9 in 10 people (86%) think there should be an independent system to complain about bailiffs.
