Our Fees

Our fees include:-

  • Taking your instructions and reviewing documents.
  • Undertaking appropriate searches.
  • Sending a letter before action.
  • Receiving payment and sending on to you, or if the debt is not paid, drafting and issuing your claim.
  • Where no Acknowledgment of Service or Defence is received, applying to the court to enter judgment in default.
  • When judgment in default is received, providing you with advice on appropriate enforcement action.

We send a letter before action promptly upon receiving instructions and if payment is made following receipt of that letter the matter will be concluded within approximately 1 week.  If payment is not made at that point proceedings will then be issued. If no attempt is made to defend the matter then we are usually in a position to enter judgment within 4 weeks or thereabouts from the commencement of instructions.

If the debtor indicates an intention to defend and then puts in a defence, the matter will take considerably longer.  If judgment is obtained but no payment is made then various enforcement actions need to be taken. A flow chart that sets out these options is available to download here.
