Rundle & Co Bailiffs Debt Collectors is among the most well-known debt collectors in the United Kingdom. While it is their duty to collect debts, you should at least expect to be treated respectfully when they contact you. Unfortunately, sometimes debt collectors can be aggressive in their tactics to get you to pay.
Dealing with debt collectors by yourself can be stressful. This is why you should let DoNotPay handle this for you. Read this article in full as we guide you on how to deal with Rundle & Co Bailiffs Debt Collectors and find out how DoNotPay can be useful.
Who Are Rundle & Co Bailiffs Debt Collectors?
Rundle & Co Bailiffs Debt Collectors was founded in 1992. The company provides debt enforcement services and specialises in collecting debts such as rent, council tax for local councils, business rates for private companies, and traffic debt like parking fines.
Although the company is registered under the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and is legally allowed to collect debts, sometimes Rundle & Co Bailiffs Debt Collectors can be very aggressive when trying to make you pay your dues.
The company normally serves as a third-party debt collector on behalf of other creditors who have tried chasing after the debt to no avail. Therefore, the only way Rundle & Co Bailiffs can make a profit is if they successfully recover money owed from the many people in debt.
While this explains their relentlessness when they come chasing after the money they are owed, they should do so in a way that doesn't violate the FCA guidelines.

How to Deal With Rundle & Co Bailiffs Debt Collectors on Your Own
When contacted by Rundle & Co Bailiffs over an outstanding amount of money you owe, you should refrain from making any payments before taking the following steps:
- Confirm if you actually owe the debt- Sometimes you may be asked to clear a debt that does not belong to you. If you are not sure if the debt belongs to you, you can confirm by checking with a credit agency like Experian.
- Request for a 'prove debt' letter- It is important to note that Rundle & Co Bailiffs Debt collectors have no right to coerce you to settle a debt if they have not sent you a 'prove debt letter'. Therefore, if you are asked to clear a debt, you should not do so until you have requested and received the letter.
- Verify if the debt is statute-barred- It is not unheard of for debt collectors like Rundle & Co Bailiffs to chase after a debt that has been written off after being statute-barred. In that sense, you should confirm if the debt is statute-barred first before making any payments.
- Check if the debt is for someone else- Mistakes may happen and a letter demanding a debt payment may end up being sent to you. Maybe it was intended for the person who was living in your house before you. If you notice that the letter refers to another person, you should contact Rundle & Co Bailiffs as soon as possible and inform them of the same.
Alternative Ways to Deal With Rundle & Co Bailiffs Debt Collectors
If you are incapable of paying the debt at the moment, there are other options available.
- Individual Voluntary Arrangement - If you desire to write a significant amount of your debt off, an Individual Voluntary Arrangement is a very good option. When entering into an IVA, you will reach a formal agreement which allows you to pay a one-time payment or instalments, and after that, you will have written off the remaining balance.
- Debt Relief Order - To be eligible for a DRO, you must have less than £50 after sorting out all your household expenses.
