SEIZED GOODS OR VEHICLE

WHAT HAPPENS

If you are present when your goods or vehicle are seized you must be presented with a ‘seizure information notice’ listing all of the items that have been seized and you have to be provided with a detailed explanation of the reasons for the goods have been seized. Your goods or possessions have been seized while you are not around then your ‘notice of seizure’ will be sent to you through the post. A notice of seizure sent through the post will contain all the information such as:

Who carried out the seizure.
The reason and legal grounds for which they carried out the seizure.
A list of all the items that have been seized.

Once you have been served your notice of seizure either in person or by post you will then have different options.

If you know or believe that the seizure was carried out correctly, and you do not wish to challenge it or to reclaim your items then you need take no further action and your items will be disposed of.

However, if you feel that your goods have been wrongfully seized then you can contest the seizure through the courts, which is why you will need an experienced lawyer who an expert in seizures.

If your vehicle has been seized due to goods disclosed in it and your intention is to recover your vehicle only then you can submit a restoration request without challenging a legality of the goods seizure.
