As an individual or a business you may be faced with the uncertainty of being owed money. This could be in the form of unpaid invoices or monies loaned that have not been repaid. If this is the case then we can offer you a swift and cost-effective debt recovery service which will allow you to recover the money that you are owed in a simple way.
Our experienced team will employ effective pre-legal action before taking Court action and, where suitable, we can negotiate weekly or monthly payment instalments and continue to monitor them to ensure that the payment plans are adhered to. For situations where Court action is required our team have the knowledge and experience to be able to guide you through the process.
We consider no debt to be too large or too small. For a no-obligation discussion please contact our team on 01305 771000.

And other information about our services
How long will it take to recover the debt?
This is difficult to predict as it is entirely dependent on the reaction of the person we are looking to recover your debt from and the turn-around time of the Court. In line with pre-action protocol we would attempt to correspond with the debtor prior to issuing Court proceedings and a Letter of Claim would need to be issued. The debtor is allowed 30 days to return the information requested in this letter. If Court action is required then the Court usually takes 10 working days to process the Claim Form and the debtor has 14 days to respond (although they can request a further 14 days). The length of time will then be dependent on how the debtor responds to the Claim Form (if they do) and this will be fully explained to you prior to us taking Court action on your behalf.
What work will we do?
- Take instructions and advise you generally
- Correspond with the debtor on your behalf
- Negotiate and monitor a payment arrangement if suitable
- Prepare and send a Letter of Claim, and advise you on any response
- Issue Court action if required
- Advise you on any responses following Court action
- Complete all Court paperwork
- Advise you on enforcement options after obtaining Judgment
- If payment is not received within a set number of days, providing you with advice on next steps and likely costs
