Debt Recovery

Our professional lawyers are able to provide you with a variety of debt recovery options to enforce a debt you are owed by either an individual or a company.

If debtor is an individual

We are able to assist you with the following options:

  • drafting a letter of demand which puts the debtor on notice that they are liable to pay you within a certain period of time before you take any further legal action against the debtor; or
  • obtaining an order from the court to force the creditor’s bank to hand over the funds in their bank account to you to clear the debt; or
  • obtaining an order from the court to force the debtor’s employer to pay the debtor’s wages directly to you to satisfy the debt; or
  • applying to make the debtor bankrupt in the event that the debt owed to you is more than $2,000.00.

Please note that it is always advised that contact us as soon as a debt has accrued to enable you to maximise your potential of obtaining a return by reason that a delay can result in difficulties in locating the debtor’s whereabouts and/or their employer.

If debtor is a company

We are able to assist you with the following options:

  • drafting a letter of demand which puts the debtor on notice that they are liable to pay you within a certain period of time before you take any further legal action against the debtor; or
  • in the event that no dispute as to the debt, we can issue a statutory demand on the company, in respect of which renders them liable to pay the amount within 21 days; or
  • in the event that the debtor fails to pay you within 21 days after issuing a statutory demand on the company, we can apply to the Supreme Court to wind up the company on the ground that the company is insolvent and cannot pay its debts as and when they fall due. A liquidator will be appointed to sell the assets of the company in order to satisfy your debt.
