New legislation will make it harder to collect unpaid debts via bailiff officers

The Justice Ministry prepared legislation that makes it harder to collect unpaid debts via bailiff officers. Now, bailiffs must leave debtors with a subsistence minimum, about €218 a month, but the new legislation sets out that debtors may keep 70% of their income. Bailiffs may seize just 30% and warn about limiting creditors’ rights. The new legislation is the idea of Sme rodina, which argues it will substantially increase the debtors’ motivation to find jobs.
