    Managing Debt Recovery

    There are four stages to commercial or civil debt recovery:

    • Letter before action
    • Issue of legal proceedings
    • Judgment and enforcement of Judgement
    • Bankruptcy/Winding up of creditors who are unable to pay

    The debt recovery process starts with a Letter Before Action, which is a stipulation of the civil procedure rules which governs legal proceedings in the UK. Many times this is all that is required to prompt the owing party to pay what is owed.

    If the debt is not paid, the creditor can choose to take the case to Court Action then if necessary obtain a County Court Judgment and Enforcement when a County Court Bailiff or High Court Enforcement Officer be able to attend the debtor’s premises to recover the debt.

    Our step by step pictorial guide and commentary will walk you through the key stages of commencing legal action towards the recovery of monies owed you.
