My landlady refused to pay my deposit back so I took her to money claim I won the case then she didn't respond so I done the enforsing judgement and now Ive got the letter fro the bailiff telling me that they met her and they couldn't do anything. So now I don't know what can I do? Can some one help me please.

Seek advice from your local MP - normally hold monthly surgery for local residents.

I presume you have her bank account details? Or can get them? (Your bank will tell you where rent cheques went to).

Look at third party debt orders. Effectively, it will freeze your landlords bank account on a certain day.
Depending on what is in there, the bank will be ordered to pay you your judgement, the bailiffs fees, and the cost of the TPDO. The bank will also charge the landlady an admin fee of iro £50 - but they get theirs before you get paid :(

The whole process will take a couple of months because there will need to be a hearing - but it's a formality.

It may be possible to get a charging order attached to the property or to her home address.

The Judge will decide if the debt is proportional to the property value and if there is a better way to enforce. So you need to send the bailiffs letter saying they couldn't do anything and also explain that you do not know her bank details.

Well you can request an 'order to provide information'. She will be ordered to attend court and a clerk will ask her a series of standard questions (and any you submit) about things like income, bank accounts, employment etc. If she fails to attend, she gets a few chances but could end up in prison.

The fee for the questioning is (iirc) £50 but you have to hand the order to the judgement debtor personally - or you can pay £100 for the bailiffs to do it. It is not acceptable to post it.
