County Court Judgments
County Court Judgments can be an effective tool in dealing with a non-paying customer. At Forensic Collections, if the debt situation is not clear-cut we use the County Court system and issue a Summons against the debtor. It is a simple and inexpensive way of putting a case before a Judge in order for him to decide if money is owed. Debt Collection Europe will issue the Summons on our clients behalf, taking them through the County Court process and if necessary attend court. Possibly you have gained a County Court Judgment against a debtor and now are at a loss of what to do. You have a piece of paper in your hand telling you that the money is owed and payable yet nothing is forth coming. We are able to assist you with the final collection procedure either by using a route through the High Court or the use of a Statutory Demand. If you find yourself in this position and would like to finally collect your money.
We are ‘No Win No Fee’, with UK collection rates starting at 8% commission. International collections start from 12% commission. However on occasions we need to take matters legal. Legal action would NEVER be taken with out the full authority of our client. Every case is taken on an individual basis and our Legal Department quote before entering into any litigation either home or abroad. On most occasions the legal fees can be added to the monies owed by the debtor and therefore are requested from the debtor along with the outstanding money. We emphasize that where legal and lawfully possible these fees will be added to the debt. However in the event of non-payment by the debtor we would look to our client for settlement of the outstanding legal account.
A Statutory Demand must always be served on the debtor before a Bankruptcy Petition is entered into. It is important only to use a Statutory Demand when the debtor has no defense. If it is a disputed situation alternative collection methods can be employed. Once the Statutory Demand has run its course of 21 days and no payment has been forth coming, a Petition can be presented. In the case of an individual it is a Bankruptcy Petition and for a company a Winding Up Petition. This is an extremely quick and effective method of bringing a debt matter to a conclusion. The amount owed must be in excess of £750.00 and undisputed.
