How it Works - We go the extra mile to get you a New Title / Ontario Vehicle Ownership!
Appointed and or Licensed Bailiffs in the Province of Ontario are Authorized to conduct Searches and Transfer of Ownerships. This allows a Ontario Bailiff to obtain ownership titles and registrations on behalf of others. Due to the RSLA - Repair Storage Liens Act R.S.O. 1990- laws in the Province of Ontario, a Bailiff is able to get vehicle titles that residents in Ontario would have great difficulty obtaining (or not be able to obtain at all) - usually obtaining a court order and going thru the long court process. Not all transfers can be processed by a Bailiff, so contact your lawyer or a Bailiff to find out.

Often Bailiffs are approached by Ontario Commercial Landlords, whose tenant is in arrears, with the request "Lock Them Out". Their intent being to hold the goods located inside the leased premises as ransom or to liquidate the goods to recover rental arrears.As a result we are regularly explaining that among the remedies available to Ontario Commercial Landlords the procedures known as TERMINATION (a.k.a. lock them out) and DISTRESS (seizure / sale) are inconsistent remedies in law, meaning they cannot be conducted simultaneously.
Recent court precedence takes the position that when a landlord, while intending to distress, changes the locks (preventing the tenant access to the premises) they are deemed to have terminated the lease. In addition to forfeiting the goods a landlord may also be liable to the tenant for costs, loss of business and punitive damages.
When a tenant has failed to pay the rent, the landlord has one of two options available:
OPTION 2: BAILIFF CAN SEIZE AND DISPOSE OF A TENANT'S PROPERTY - (DISTRESS)
A landlord can hire a Bailiff to seize and dispose of a tenant’s property that is contained within the rented premises. The landlord is not required to give advance notice of seizing the tenant’s property, unless the lease provides for it. However, Ontario Bailiffs are required to notify the tenant of the distress and the sum of monies required to cure the default before proceeding to sell the seized property.
Before disposing of seized property, the Bailiff must hold it for five days. If the proper payment is made by the tenant in this five day period, the Bailiff is not permitted to sell the tenant’s property. Otherwise, after the proper appraisals are made, the property can be sold. There must be 2 independent accredited personal property appraisals done before liquidation of the assets can be sold.
Example: January 1st – rent due and not paid
January 2nd or later – seize tenant’s property and notify the tenant of intent to dispose.
Five days after seizure – obtain 2 appraisals and dispose of tenant’s property if the proper payment is not made by the tenant.

Bailiff Services of Debit Security Enforcements
- PPSA Bailiff Repossession of goods in Ontario
Debt secured by goods goes into default, the lender can immediately retain a Bailiff
Ontario Bailiff can enforce the PPSA - Act in Ontario;
Debts are secured in one of two ways. They are secured either by land or by goods.
If secured by land, the security takes the form of a mortgage that is registered against title to the property. If secured by goods, the security takes the form of a Notice of Security Interest that is registered with a Notice of Security Interest under the Personal Property Security Act (the “PPSA”), usually identifying the specific goods pledged as collateral.
If the debt secured by land goes into default, the mortgagee can bring an action for power of sale against the mortgagor under the Mortgages Act and eventually sell the property to cover the debt. However, this can be a long and costly court procedure. This is why it is usually beneficial to also secure the debt against goods, as well as the land, because collection against goods is faster and more cost efficient.
If the debt secured by goods goes into default, the lender can immediately retain a Bailiff to go in and seize the goods that were pledged as collateral to the loan. The security must be registered under the PPSA, but after only 15 days notice, the Bailiff is able to sell the goods in satisfaction of the debt. It is a fast and efficient remedy, and allows the debt to be dealt with before the arrears get too high.
The PPSA allows debts to be secured against both land and goods, giving the lender the option to proceed against one or the other, or both. The provisions of the Mortgages Act allow the debtor so many delays and options to prolong the process, it is good practice to include a security in goods, in addition to the mortgage, just to ensure that effective steps can be taken to get payment on the debt before the arrears get out of control.
