Recovering Your Debts

Once we are on the case we have dedicated and enthusiastic staff and highly efficient processes in place, so we can take the burden off you and work towards a speedy and satisfactory conclusion.
The debt collection process starts with a Letter Before Action, which is often all that is required to prompt the recipient to pay what is owed. If the debt is not paid, you can choose to take the case to Court Action then if necessary County Court Judgment and Enforcement when a County Court Bailiff or High Court Enforcement Officer will attend the debtor's premises to recover the debt.
