Recover Property & Collect Business Debts
Bad debts in your business represent “dead money” which could be converted into cash. Unless a Debtor responds to reasonable requests for payment, the only lawful course of action open to a Creditor is to seek redress through civil legal proceedings.
The majority of old debts are settled after a formal “letter before action” requesting a debtor pays within a specified time. In many cases simply instructing our Debt Collection Department to write this letter will be enough to make the debtor pay.
If it becomes necessary to issue proceedings to recovery the debt we will go through the procedure, time frame and costs with you in detail. This will allow you to assess whether it is a debt worth pursuing or one that is better written off.
