OUR LEGAL FEES AND DISBURSEMENTS
Debt Recovery stage 2 – Court proceedings
If the debtor fails to respond to letter before action or fails to pay within 14 days, court proceedings may be commenced.
This involves lodging a Claim Form/Particulars of Claim with the relevant court.
The court will effect service of Claim Form/Particulars of Claim on the defendant who will have 14 days within which to
acknowledge service and if the defendant does so the defendant will be entitled to a further 14 days within which to file any defence to be relied upon.
If proceedings become defended, it will be necessary for us to discuss and agree a new fee/disbursement
estimate as the details provided here relate to undisputed debt claims.
If the defendant fails to acknowledge service and/or fails to lodge any defence, you will be
entitled to apply to the court for summary/default judgment. You will be entitled to recover
court fee paid and fixed costs in addition to the sum claimed.
