answer

Can an enforcement agent put their foot across the threshold of my door if it is open?

Enforcement agents do have the power to place a foot across the threshold of a doorway in certain limited circumstances in order to keep open a line of communication.  Whether the enforcement agent does this will depend on the reason for their visit, and what positive outcome they expect to achieve.

Our enforcement agents also follow standards set in the government's Taking Control of Goods: National Standards.  This is a voluntary code of conduct which can be found here.
