If the other party disputes your claim at any point, we will discuss any further work required and provide you with revised advice about costs if necessary, which could be on a fixed fee (e.g. if a one-off letter is required), or an hourly rate if more extensive work is needed.

How long will it take?

Matter usually take between 2-4 months from receipt of instructions from you to receipt of payment from the other side depending on whether it is necessary to issue a claim and the speed of the court involved. There is a court defined Protocol for pursuing debts from individuals which requires a Letter of Claim to be sent giving not less than 30 days to respond and providing appropriate information concerning the debt. If following judgment being obtained enforcement action is needed the matter will take longer to resolve.
