Judges Demand

£9,528.00 Recovered following Statutory Demand ‘be careful what you wish for’

Published On: 27th June 2016

We can report that we have successfully recovered £9,528.00 from a Sole Trader on behalf of a Shopfitter in relation to works carried out by our Client.

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 made contact but refused to pay saying ‘take me to court’ and ‘you’re not getting a penny’ and he failed to supply any valid or genuine dispute to why he feels he does not owe the money.

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 apply to set aside the demand.

The debtor made contact at our office after being served with the Statutory Demand and offered to pay the balance in instalments. Our Client rejected his proposal based on our advice as it would have taken over a year to repay.

We were aware that the debtor owned two properties, one in an upmarket part of London.

We advised the debtor that payment in full must be paid by the 21 day deadline or we will instruct our Solicitors to issue the Bankruptcy Petition, on the 19th day we received full payment direct in to our account.

Our Client is extremely happy with this outcome and will be sending us a Testimonial shortly.
