With the Covid-19 pandemic still very much active, bailiff companies are making very tough decisions whether to visit clients or not. On this post we aim to keep you updated on how Moorcroft Debt Recovery Limited are handling visits to their debtors.
At the moment we are receiving a high amount of questions from customers who are concerned about Moorcroft Group debts.
We have had reports from numerous customers that Moorcroft Group are still sending letters and making follow up calls and texts. It appears they are now resuming with home visits. If you have received a home visit or a letter from Moorcroft, get in touch with the team immediately for advice.
Who are Moorcroft Debt Recovery?
Moorcroft Debt Recovery are a bailiffs company which are authorised to collect debts. They usually collect debts for council tax, CCJ’s and utilities.
Are Moorcroft Debt Recovery open?
It seems that Moorcroft are visiting a limited amount of properties. There may be a period of “catch-up”, whilst they establish their strategy and look to ease back into normal business.
Shall I ignore my Moorcroft debts?
We are 100% certain that Moorcroft Group are sitting on a backlog of debts, especially council tax debts. With visits stopping at the end of March, they have 2 months + worth of debt to to collect.
Council tax debts are collected very aggressively. With the councils losing millions in parking ticket revenue, it is a certainty that they will be collecting these debts as soon as they are allowed to.
There is also an interesting article in the Sun, about a customer from Stoke-on-Trent who managed to settle a high number of his unsecured debts through negotiating himself. Please note, this didn’t stop a very high amount of visits from bailiffs and debt collectors.
What should I do?
If you have debts which total over £5000, you may be able to write off this debt with an IVA.
