Hi Silverfox,

The news article I read about this said Bailiffs may not enter if ONLY children are present. That puts a quite different perspective on it.

It still gives tenants another loophole though - How can bailiffs prove no adults are present?
Also, when they know bailiffs are on their way tenants could just leave their kids in the house on their own. They could simply sit outside in their car or slip next door to the neighbours and drink tea until the bailiffs have left!

Not good news for Landlords anyway!
