Debt Recovery

Debt Recovery

In acting for a creditor the steps usually taken for recovery of debt are:

  1. Letter of demand, giving the debtor a limited time to pay the debt or enter into an arrangement for payment that is satisfactory to the creditor
  2. If there is no satisfactory response to the letter of demand, commence proceedings in the appropriate court
  3. If the proceedings are not defended, obtain judgment by default
  4. Commence enforcement action to recover the amount of the judgment debt.

Enforcement action may include:

  • An application to the court to wind up a company
  • An application to the court to bankrupt an individual
  • Enforcement hearing to obtain information to facilitate the enforcement of a money order
  • Advise on the termination of employment of employees
  • Defend employee claims such as unfair dismissal, adverse action, breach of contract
  • Enforcement warrant for seizure and sale of property or redirection of earnings
