Our PRocess

Debt Recovery

Stage 1

Taking Instructions & Checking Information

At this stage we will take instructions from you on the case. We collect the relevant documents and information from yourselves to get the process started, and review it before proceeding to stage 2.

Stage 2

Letter Before Action

At this stage we issue a letter to the debtor stating the outstanding amount and reserving the right to proceed to court action. Often, the debtor will make payment at this stage.

Stage 3

Court Action

If the debt is not paid at Stage 2 we will file a claim form with the court. The court will then serve a the claim form on the debtor, giving them 13 days to admit and pay the debt, enter into negotiation to settle or defend the action.

Stage 4

Application for Enforcement

If the debtor still does not make payment within the timescale allotted by the court then we will make an application for Enforcement, obtaining a County Court Judgment. The court may instruct a Bailiff at this stage to recover the debt.
