When debt collection actions have failed to collect the debt what further steps can you take?
You can issue a Statutory Demand.
Bailiffs, Enforcement Agents can assist at a number of stages in the process.
Most statutory demands are issued following the issue of a county court judgement. The CCJ means the debt has been proven in a court of law, and the creditors are entitled to their money.
Once a statutory demand has been issued and served, you can follow it up 21 days later with a bankruptcy petition (if you serve it on an individual) or winding up petition (if you serve it on a company).
A statutory demand can be very powerful in persuading companies and individuals to pay their debts.
