I had a court order against two individuals who didn’t pay rent for almost a year. This was in addition to legal fees and damages to my property. I assigned the case to DCBL to collect. It started well. They collected their fees first for …

Received a false notice of debt recovery from this company with no means to appeal other than going to court. The whole system is corrupt. If anyone that works for DCBL sees this, please have some self respect and get a job at McDonalds.

Was threatened with court by a really rude and patronising man. Awful company, they won’t show you proof that anyone has tried to contact you in the past and force you to take their word for it, threatening you with court. How can you have any morals threatening people in a cost-of-living crisis. Disgusting company.

Avoid at all costs. I had to chase repeatedly for updates on whether a debtor had paid on her plan they set up. They would let months go by without letting me know anything. And when I did call for updates, they gave attitude. i have taken the debtor back to court. Don’t waste your time or money with these so called bailiffs.

absolutely useless, don’t pick up the phone, your payment section in the website never works. the automated voice system to pay is absolutely useless as well. the woman says 1 word every 5 minutes. If DCBL wants money, at least make it easy for us to pay. very quick to send letters and what not but take forever to actually do your job.
