Company Debt Recovery Solicitor Near Me
There are several stages to debt recovery in the UK. These are:
- Letter Before Action (LBA). Sending an LBA to a debtor is the first step towards recouping any monies owed. This is effective in most cases, and no further action is required.
- Legal proceedings. If you send an LBA to your debtor, but you do not receive a satisfactory response, the next stage is to issue legal proceedings through the County Court. The debtor will be sent a court form requiring them to pay the debt, plus interest and costs, within 14 days.
- County Court Judgment (CCJ). If a debtor has defaulted on payments, a CCJ is a court order confirming this. A CCJ enables you to take enforcement action to collect the debt.
- Enforcement. Once a CCJ has been issued, you are then able to ‘enforce’ that debt immediately.
Debtors are deemed as insolvent if they fail to make payment on demand, and the debt hasn’t been contested.
