Practical Straightforward Solutions

The simple solutions are often the best

A straightforward solicitor’s letter will often get the result you want. It’s a polite but professional nudge that shows the debtor that you are serious. About 80% of the time, reluctant debtors will ‘prioritise’ your payment.

Beyond that, there is a series of measures that we can help you with.

The approach will vary depending on whether the claim is more or less than £10,000.

Typical Debt Recovery Route

We can help you manage the escalating process.

  • Send a solicitors letter
  • Follow up with a phone call
  • Obtain further information on your debtor
  • Issue court proceedings (small claims court)
  • Obtain a County Court Judgment (CCJ)
  • Enforce a CCJ to obtain payment

Important issues to consider

You need to be clear about who the debtor really is contractually – ie. whether they are a sole trader, a private individual or a company.

Don’t waste time or money pursuing people and organisations who simply don’t have the money to pay you.

We can help you gather the right information by completing various searches - so you can then take the right course of action.
