If you ignore a Liability Order

Enforcement agents 

We can instruct enforcement agents (formerly known as bailiffs) to take your goods and sell them to pay off your debt.

If we use an enforcement agent further fees of up to £420 will be added to what you already owe. These fees are set by the government.
