Debt Recovery Bundle

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.

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. The Debt Recovery bundle download includes three letters of demand and a Statement of Claim so you can take the matter to court if the debt is not paid. Included in the download:

Checklist
