Unfortunately, many of us find ourselves in a position where we are owed money by another others. This debt can come in many forms: failure by creditors to pay invoices, money loaned to others etc.
Sometimes matters can be resolved amicably with the other party without the need for legal intervention. However, that is not always the case. At that point it is worth obtaining legal advice regarding your options.
Our specialist debt recovery team can provide you with clear and cost effective advice and guidance on how to recover sums of money owed to you.
Usually the first step would be to draft a ‘Letter before Action’ to the other party setting out the request for payment and legal basis for that request. Parties are expected to attempt to resolve matters without Court intervention, if at all possible, through methods such as mediation. Unfortunately, sometimes correspondence is not enough to resolve a dispute and it is necessary to issue proceedings to progress.
Our solicitors are experienced in issuing and progressing claims through Court if necessary. If a Judgment is obtained there are various methods of enforcing that Judgment if payment is not forthcoming from the debtor. The suitability of the methods largely depend on the debtor’s circumstances and we would tailor enforcement to the specific circumstances of the case to ensure maximum recoverability.
We can arrange appointments at any of our three offices: Merthyr Tydfil, Nelson and Llanishen. The Nelson and Llanishen offices are open 9am-5pm Monday to Friday. Our Merthyr Tydfil office is also open 9am-5pm Monday to Friday but is also open 9am-12pm Saturdays to accommodate clients.
We can arrange appointments in person or via telephone if more convenient. We are often able to offer appointments for debt recovery work for a fixed fee and will provide clear cost estimates so that you are aware of future costs. Dependant on the value of your debt, if you are successful in your claim, you may be able to seek recovery of your costs from the other party.
We would be more than happy to assist with any queries you may have. As well as Civil Litigation we also deal with a variety of other matters and have various methods of funding any transaction if Legal Aid is not available.
