What is a statutory demand?
A statutory demand, sometimes referred to as a statutory notice or statutory letter, is a written warning from a creditor to a debtor, which demands that an unpaid debt be paid or the creditor and debtor reach an agreement over the debt within 21 days. If the debtor ignores this demand, or if their response is deemed to be less than satisfactory, the creditor may then choose to proceed with further debt recovery actions, up to and potentially including bankruptcy or a winding-up petition.
How should I prepare for a debt recovery court case?
It’s generally a good idea to first reach out to your debtor on an informal basis, and attempt to come to an informal agreement. Lots of debt recovery cases stem from simple cashflow issues, and these can sometimes be resolved without resorting to legal action.
However, if these discussions break down, or you have good reason to believe that you’re unlikely to recoup a particularly significant debt, it’s best to prepare by collecting as much written evidence as possible, starting with the paperwork or a breakdown of the discussions leading to the relationship and the debt beginning to arise, and any written communication that demonstrates you tried to resolve the dispute. The communications can also prove useful in helping your debt recovery solicitor to understand the history of the dispute, and strengthens your negotiating position. Examples of evidence can include texts, letters, emails, instant messages, and photos.
How long will a debt recovery action take?
This depends on the nature and specifics of your case, and particularly comes down to the conduct and financial position of the debtor, but it’s not unusual for cases to take months to be properly resolved, and in some cases it can even take years. This is just one reason why it’s so important to carefully consider and get the most well-informed, practical, and business minded legal advice at the outset whether it’s worth pursuing legal action to recover your debt, as you may be in for the long haul. However, rest assured that if that’s the case, you can count on our experts here at Farleys to be with you every step of the way.
