Judges Demand

Full payment on court steps prior to Winding Up Hearing

Published On: 23rd November 2015

We can report that we have successfully recovered just over £28,000.00 from a Limited Company on behalf of a Scaffolding Company.

We made direct contact with the debtor and supplied them with full evidence of the claim and outlined our Clients intentions to pursue this matter further if necessary, the debtor offered to pay the balance in installments which was accepted by our client.

However, after the debtor made 4 payment he defaulted on the agreement and claimed he had no more money to pay.

A Statutory Demand was served on the debtor by a licenced process server. The debtor had 21 days to pay the balance in full or 18 days to seek injunctive relief.

The debtor offered another payment plan however, this was rejected by our Client due to the debtor failing to adhere to the previous payment plan and the fact it would have taken over 3 years to repay.

We instructed our Solicitor to issue a Winding Up Petition which was served on the debtor, the debtor again made contact offering the same payment plan that was previously rejected.

Two hours before the Winding Up Hearing was due to be take place we received a call from the debtor offering to pay the balance in full, this was paid and we instructed our Solicitor to dismiss the Petition at the hearing.
