The Debt Collection Process

As experienced debt collectors on the Sunshine Coast, we have the knowledge and skills needed to handle your case with care and precision. Let us take the burden off your shoulders and guide you towards a successful resolution.

No Obligation Case Evaluation

To begin the process of recovering a debt, the initial step is to submit a Statement Of Claim to the appropriate court. This statement contains all the particulars regarding the debt, such as the debtor's identity, the amount of debt, and the due date. The debtor must be served with this document to ensure that they are informed of their responsibilities and to initiate court proceedings.

In order to ask for a court decision, it is necessary to file a request for default judgment. This decision can force the defendant to pay the debt they owe. It is crucial to show evidence of proper communication and provide all necessary information in the affidavit that supports the request for default judgment.

After you receive a ruling in your favour, you may then initiate enforcement proceedings, such as:

  • Obtaining an enforcement warrant to seize assets
  • Filing for bankruptcy in the case of an individual debtor
  • Issuing a Statutory Demand if the debtor is a corporation
  • Pursuing liquidation proceedings to wind up the company. Dealing with debt disputes in Queensland can be complex, so it is essential to get professional legal guidance.

If a debtor does not respond to a summons, a court-issued order known as an enforcement warrant permits a sheriff or bailiff to take hold of the debtor's assets to settle the debt. 

When a person who owes money has been given a court order but still fails to pay their debts, bankruptcy proceedings are started. The aim of this process is to sell off the debtor's assets in order to pay their creditors.

If you win a court case, you have the option to request the court to force the company into liquidation due to insolvency. This can be done by sending a demand and a copy of the judgement to the debtor, who will have 21 days to respond.

If they do not respond, they will be considered insolvent, and you can apply for the company to be liquidated by the court. The company's assets will be sold, and the proceeds will be used to pay off your debt and other creditors.

Frequently Asked Questions

Initially, our aim is to settle the debt disagreement through means other than legal proceedings.

However, if the debtor is unyielding, then legal action becomes necessary to recuperate the debt. The purpose of taking legal action for debt recovery is to obtain a money order that can be enforced and then used to seize the property of the debtor.

To obtain a money order that can be enforced, one must file a claim in either the Court with jurisdiction or QCAT. Once the order is obtained, it can be enforced over the property owned by the judgment debtor. It is crucial to follow this process to ensure the enforceability of the money order.

It is simply another way of expressing the same concept. Debt collection should not be done by unlicensed personnel and must be done by lawyers who are competent in legal debt recovery.

A statutory demand is a formal request for payment of a debt which must be served by the creditor on the debtor. The demand must be in writing and must specify the amount of debt, the date when it became due, and the name and address of the debtor. If the debtor fails to comply with a statutory demand within 21 days, they may be presumed to be insolvent and their assets may be seized.

A letter of demand is a formal document written by a creditor to a debtor, demanding payment of the debt within a specified period. The letter should include details such as the amount owed, the date when it became due, and any fees or penalties associated with the debt.

It should also specify any action that may be taken against the debtor if they fail to make payment within the specified period.
