It is common for businesses to occasionally experience cash flow issues. These may occur for a multitude of reasons. However, chasing debts can be highly time-consuming, costly, and can even become distressing, as debt can have a huge impact on the everyday running of a business.

Options for Debt Recovery

There are many options for debt recovery and at Ridgemont, we know that there is not a one size fits all approach to recover debts, that is why we choose the right options for each of our clients based on their individual circumstances.

Listed below are some of the debt recovery options available to our clients:

Settlement Discussions - If you are looking to maintain a business relationship, you may want to consider this option. We can negotiate with the debtor on your behalf, to find a solution to the issue.

County Court Money Judgment Proceedings - If you are considering applying to a court for a County Court Judgment (CCJ), we can provide you with our advice and expertise. This process can be smooth after establishing a positive response from the debtor. However, if the debtor has decided to not respond to your claim, you are entitled to apply for a ‘judgment by admission’ or ‘judgment in default’ where you will receive a CCJ in your favour.

Charging Order Proceedings - If you do obtain a CCJ, then we can assist in seeking a Charging Order, which means that if the debtor has sold assets, or they have become insolvent, you may be entitled to recover all the debt owed by the debtor if they have the funds.

Enforcement Proceedings - There is another way of obtaining a CCJ and this is by ordering county court bailiffs or High Court Enforcement Officers to enter the debtor’s premises where they will then be permitted to recover the debt that is owed.

It is important to contact us early on so that we can provide you with expert advice on the best course of action to ensure that the debt is settled in a timely and cost-efficient manner.
