Legal Action

 

Unfortunately instances can arise where legal action needs to be issued for payment from your debtor to be achieved. Litigation is a complex process and is best facilitated by specialists. in addition to our own specialists, County Collections has a nationwide network of law firms with which it has longstanding relationships. These relationships enable County Collections to offer cost effective options for our clients where litigation is complex and defended.

 

County Collections can facilitate legal action in conjunction with these external law firms.

 

In our experience, we have seen legal action result in successful recovery if the following criteria are met:

 

  •       There is an expectation that your defaulting customer can pay
  •       The individual's whereabouts is known

 

We have seen that the act of taking legal action demonstrates to the defaulting customer the seriousness of the situation and can often encourage immediate settlement of an outstanding account
