We provide a national “No Win, No Fee” pre-legal tenant debt recovery service.
Once instructed we pass the case onto our High Court Enforcement partners who will then write to, email, phone and/or visit the debtor (your tenant) to either settle the debt in full or reach an agreed payment plan.
During this stage a pre-legal letter is sent warning the debtor (tenant) that if they fail to make contact and agree to either settle the debt in full or reach an agreed payment arrangement further action will be taken. This action may include obtaining a County Court Judgment (CCJ) or other enforcement action.
If no meaningful contact or payment is made during this 7 to 14 day pre-legal period we will then help you through the process of taking further action, if appropriate, and not limited to obtaining a CCJ (County Court Judgement).
Our fee for Pre-Legal Debt Recovery is 20% of whatever is collected. Call us now on 0800 566 8 566.
A tenant may leave a property at the end of the tenancy without providing a forwarding address.
A number of these will have built up significant debts to the landlord such as not paying rent arrears, legal costs or for property damage.
Some tenants deliberately withhold providing a forwarding address in an attempt to avoid paying what is owed. It is now very difficult to move without leaving a “digital footprint”. Our highly skilled trace team locate absconded tenants, we then proceed with debt recovery action.
The next stage in the legal process is to issue court proceedings via the County Court to obtain a County Court Judgment (a CCJ).
This is a formal process where the debtor (the tenant) will be sent a form from the County Court requiring them to pay the debt and costs within 14 days.
Our specialist High Court Enforcement solicitors will obtain a County Court Judgment (CCJ) for you. The fee for this is £200.
The relevant court fee will also be payable, our applications are made online so the lower fee applies.
