Unpaid Debts – how to achieve payment – Top Tips

Rent Arrears

  • if your tenant owes rent to you – start by contacting the tenant to see if there is any reason for their non-payment other than that they can’t pay;
  • If the arrears are older than six months then consider issuing a county court claim against them for payment of the rent;
  • There are delays and restrictions on evicting tenants (unless your debt is exempt for any reason) but you can you still issue a county court claim and if there is no defence receive a judgment against the tenant for the arrears.
  • We can provide various enforcement methods depending on what assets are available and what costs you are prepared to pay;
  • If you do not have the time or the energy to deal with a claim against your tenant than contact us for a no obligation quote to contact the tenant and issue a county court claim against them.

Unpaid Invoices/loans or other debts

  • If the company or individual ignores your letters or phone calls – then contact us to write to them;
  • We can look into debts that are disputed and provide our experienced advice in relation to the merits of the claims; 
  • Having a City Law firm stating  that a court claim may be brought against them for non- payment may make them respond or provide an offer of payment;
  • We can help you recover any debts that have been unpaid to allow your accounts and credit control teams to concentrate on the running of your business.
