Meet With Us

We will meet with you at a time and place that is convenient for you. We will discuss the monies owing to you, gather the paperwork identifying proof of the monies owing and provide you with information regarding the process of debt recovery and how we will work for you moving forward.


Letter of Demand

Upon receiving your instructions, we will write a letter of demand to the debtor seeking immediate payment of the monies owed. In our letter of demand we will advise the debtor that if we do not receive payment on your behalf that we will be commencing Court proceedings to recover the monies owed.


Await a response

We will await contact from the debtor to discuss the monies owed. Alternatively we may receive payment of the monies owed after the debtors receive our letter of demand. If the debtor wishes to negotiate the debt owed, we will seek your instructions prior to negotiating an agreement.


Further and final letter of demand

If we do not receive a response from our initial letter of demand, we will issue a further and final letter of demand. This will notify the debtor that this is their last chance of paying the debt before Court costs and interest begin to accrue, costing them more money. Hopefully upon receipt of this further and final letter of demand you will receive payment of the monies that are owed to you.


Consider commencing Court proceedings

If we do not receive a response to our further and final letter of demand, we will seek your instructions as to whether you would like to commence Court proceedings to try and recover the debt. When advising you as to whether to commence Court proceedings, we will talk to you about the risks involved, the time it may take and of course the costs involved in litigating the debt recovery. You can then make a decision as to what you would like to do.
