DEBT CLAIM FEES

Debt Claims up to £100,000

 

The process for handling debt claims is to write an initial letter before claim to the debtor and give them 21 days to pay the outstanding debt.  If the debt is not paid at that stage we advise you as to whether the debtor appears to have sufficient assets to merit issuing a claim in Court.  If it is anticipated that the debtor will be able to pay a judgment debt we then proceed to prepare the claim for issue in Court.  The Court fee charged depends on the value of the debt and interest.  The current Court fees are set out below.
