Debt Recovery Bundle

 

The first step in Debt Recovery is a well worded letter of demand. It is helpful to recommend a client issue a demand of their own. This puts the debtor on notice that they are seriously overdue and foreshadows the matter being passed to a solicitor. After the client’s demand a formal letter of demand should come from the solicitor’s office.  

 

Is the debt recoverable? A client should be asked some basic questions to determine if a debt actually exists under general common law principles. That is, there should be a contract of some description if only a verbal agreement. Some goods or services supplied would have been supplied by the plaintiff (or other form of valuable consideration), and an invoice issued. The importance of issuing an invoice cannot be overlooked. Sometimes it is necessary to advise a client that they must properly issue a tax invoice before their money can be pursued further.

Debt Recovery Bundle Includes

Checklist  

An updated checklist includes points on what to cover before granting credit to determine if the client is creditworthy or if the debt is recoverable. These will assist in advising clients and will serve as a reminder to the practitioner on what to look out for when assessing the credit worthyness of new clients (and reassessing existing clients).

Very good precedent - only comment would be to provide some examples or comments if each clause is essential to create a binding financial agreement and, if optional, 1 or 2 brief examples of circumstances where the relevant clause could be excluded.
