In the unlikely event that our collection strategy proves unsuccessful, you can choose to escalate your account through to one of our set price litigation products via our preferred legal partner. Once your chosen debt recovery strategy has completed, accounts that are not closed will automatically receive an email explaining the available choices.

To instigate litigation activity (up to an including the issue of a claim), you do not need to engage directly with our legal partner(s), we look after all of that for you. We will export the relevant details of your claim and they will start the legal processes to recover your funds.

Legal activity can involve the following:

  • Issue of a Claim
  • Issue of a Statutory Demand
  • Apply for an Attachment of Earning (for individuals)
  • Apply for a Warrant of Control
  • Apply for Bankruptcy Proceedings (against individuals who owe more than £750)
  • Apply for a Winding Up Order (against a Limited Company who owe more than £750)

The initial process will be to issue a ’letter before action’ and if required, a county court claim, in an attempt to collect your outstanding invoice without the need for any enforcement activity. This will be included in the price you pay for the service.

You will never be charged for any recommended enforcement activity until you have confirmed your agreement to the proposal.

You will agree to our legal partners standard Terms and Conditions when purchasing any of their services. They are authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and are therefore subject to their rules and principles of professional conduct. This relevant code of conduct can be found at:

Litigation can be an important part of your overall collection strategy, however COLLECTaDEBTpro believe that this should only ever be used as a last resort on cases where this activity makes both ethical and financial sense.
