New Court rules introduced to chase debtors
7th November 2017
... Comments

New have rules have come into effect when chasing individuals , including sole traders for outstanding debts . The new rules do not apply when the debtors are companies or partnerships.

Gone are the days , when a simple "7 day " letter can be sent .Instead detailed information and documents must be provided , outlining how the debt arose and why previous proposals for payment were unacceptable . 

The debtor has 30 days to respond and can claim another 30 days if they wish to seek legal advice . The creditor then has to give a further 14 days notice before proceedings are issued .

Creditors therefore need to act quickly when debts become overdue and ensure they chase promptly.
