Mrs T, an 82 year old widow, contacted the telephone information line in great distress; she had had a letter from the bailiffs who were due to visit the following day. The adviser was able to establish that the letter related to a previous occupant and contacted the bailiff on behalf of Mrs T to explain. The bailiff's office, once it had been established there had been an error, agreed to cancel the visit. During a follow up call Mrs T commented that she was very relieved and that a weight had been lifted from her shoulders.
