If and when the high court sheriffs visits someone who has got a new partner, got married and living together but debts were before they met but the debtor could not keep up payments or did not want to pay, the high court gents could go to their new address and do everything you see on tv and even take the car away that was paid for by their new partner but bought as a gift for them?
Btw, great tv show the high court sheriffs.
If OP can show he's acting responsibly and working to clear debts then he should be fine. As others have said, partners possessions are exempt from bailiffs if they can prove ownership.
