When your customers fail to pay their debts it is always best to take steps to engage with your debtor to try to resolve matters before taking legal action. It may be that they have simply forgotten to pay, and a gentle reminder could be sufficient to remedy this quickly. However, there will be cases when your debtor refuses or is unable to pay.
Your debtor should be given fair warning that you are considering legal action and provide a reasonable period to pay to avoid court action. What constitutes a ‘reasonable period' will depend on the circumstances but in most cases, seven days will be sufficient.
Raising an Action
A range of enforcement options are available to unpaid creditors and we can advise on the most appropriate in the circumstances. These include:
● Statutory demand● Bankruptcy● Arrestment of the debtor’s assets or bank account● Earning arrestment – deducting money from your debtor's salary● Inhibition – preventing your debtor from selling property● Attachment – leading to the sale of the debtor’s property
