Time Scales

There is no typical debt recovery time scale. However, as an example, a typical debt recovery demand letter requires a company to respond within 7 days and a [non-corporate] private individual to respond within 30 days.

The time scale will be impacted if we are required to issue a claim and if the other side pay promptly on receipt of any judgment issued by a court.

If enforcement action is required, we will discuss the fees and timescales involved.

Key Stages

With every transaction there are key stages, which may vary according to individual circumstances. Our fee covers the following:

  • Taking your instructions and reviewing documentation
  • Undertaking appropriate searches
  • Issuing a letter before action requesting payment from the debtor
  • Receiving payment and sending this on to you
  • Drafting and issuing a claim form to the relevant court if the debt is not paid
  • Applying to the court to enter a Judgment in Default if the debtor fails to respond to court proceedings
  • Contacting the other side to request payment where a Judgment in Default has been issued by the court

The above information is subject to amendment.

Prometheus Law does not accept service of documents by email and fax.
