    Debt Collection FAQs

    Debt recovery lawyers take the animosity and stress away from recovering your debts.  As specialists in debt recovery we have heard of many of the excuses that non paying debtors come up with to avoid paying your accounts. 

    The debt collection process involves creditors or collection agencies pursuing unpaid debts. It typically begins with notifications to debtors, followed by reminders and negotiations. 

    If unsuccessful, legal action may be taken, resulting in a court judgment. 

    Debt collection agencies and debt recovery lawyers can also assist. Unpaid debts can harm a debtor’s credit score. Debt settlement may be an option.

    From our experience the sooner you take steps to start the debt collection process, the better the outcome for you. 

    Creditors may pursue debt recovery via the formal court process, depending on the debt’s size. Debts under $100,000 are handled by the Magistrates Court of SA, while those exceeding $100,000 are addressed in the District Court of SA. Prior to legal action, creditors must provide notice of their intent to initiate a lawsuit.

    Randle & Taylor offers fixed fees for both Letters of Demand and Final Notices pursuant to Rule 62.1 of the Uniform Civil Rules 2020. 

    Randle & Taylor has an association with a licensed investigation firm who are experienced in making field calls to companies and individuals who do not pay their debts and we can organise a field call for you to ascertain when your debt is to be paid.  We find this to be a cost effective way of recovering debts.   

    If Randle & Taylor believes that there is no reasonable basis upon which the debtor is not paying your debt we will act for you on the basis that if the matter proceeds to court we will charge you in accordance with the Court’s scale of fees payable so as to maximise to the extent possible your chances of recovering from the debtor if fees and disbursements associated with recovering your debt.
