Do you have a tenant who isn’t paying rent?
Do you wish to issue proceedings against a debtor?
Have you already obtained judgment and are now looking to enforce the same?
Whether you are running a business or simply trying to manage your personal finances, keeping a close eye on cash flow and bad debts is vital to your economic success.
Chasing debtors can be an expensive and time-consuming process especially if you are not familiar with the procedures or options available to you.
Our team of solicitors are here to help you decide on the best path of enforcement available to you, regardless of your circumstances.
Whatever your situation, our solicitors always take the time to fully understand the facts of the case and to negotiate on your behalf with the person or company that owes you money.
Very often we are able to overcome debt disputes without the need for Court proceedings; however, our Litigation Team are more than prepared to begin Court proceedings against those who refuse to pay.
As these cases often have very different circumstances, our solicitors adopt the right approach for the situation when enforcing your debt.
Most of our possession claims are successful and are dealt with at one hearing. On occasions, tenants make representations on the day and try and claim a counterclaim and a set-off. If they can persuade the Court that it has merit, the Court may allow the tenant to get legal advice and file a counterclaim. If this is the case, or for any other reason, that a possession hearing involves more than one hearing, or further drafting of court papers, we will have to charge you a further fee or an hourly rate. However, we always discuss this with you and we always make it commercially viable for you.
