When Will Debt Collectors Give Up? Understanding Shergroup UK’s Approach

“When will debt collectors give up?” This is a common question asked by individuals who owe money. The reality, however, is that creditors are often unwilling to give up until all possible avenues have been explored to recover what is owed. At Shergroup UK, we understand both the creditor’s need to recover funds and the debtor’s concerns. Here’s an overview of how we approach debt collection, especially with our No Collect No Fee service.

The Persistence of Creditors

Creditors usually want to exhaust every possible method to recover their money. This determination is driven by the necessity to maintain cash flow and the principle of being paid for services or goods provided. At Shergroup UK, we support creditors through a comprehensive and structured debt collection process designed to maximize recovery while being fair and just.

Pre-Legal Stage | Our Starting Point

Our debt collection process begins with a pre-legal stage, where we take on cases and evaluate them thoroughly. During this phase, we engage with debtors to understand their situation and encourage payment. It’s a critical step where we look for compelling evidence that might suggest the debt isn’t owed or that the debtor is in a vulnerable situation.

Legal Stage | Escalation to Legal Claim

If, after our pre-legal efforts, the debt remains unpaid and there is no compelling reason to halt the process, we escalate the matter to a legal claim. This escalation is a significant step, signalling the creditor’s seriousness about recovering the debt. Our team prepares and files the necessary legal documents, moving towards obtaining a judgment against the debtor.

Enforcement Stage | Obtaining a Judgment

When a debt is not paid or defended in court, we proceed to obtain a judgment. This legal recognition of the debt is a powerful tool that confirms the debtor’s obligation to pay. A judgment opens the door to various enforcement options, each tailored to the debtor’s specific circumstances.Β 

Our Effective Enforcement Strategy | Writ of Control

One of the most cost-effective and impactful enforcement methods we employ is the Writ of Control.Β  As our CEO is a High Court Enforcement Officer, the Writ of Control allows our Enforcement Agents to visit the debtor at their business or home. During this visit, they can assess the debtor’s ability to pay by observing their environment and assets. This personal interaction often provides the clarity needed to resolve the debt, either through immediate payment or a structured repayment plan.

The Role of Evidence and Vulnerability

Throughout our process, we remain vigilant for any evidence suggesting the debt is not owed or that the debtor is in a vulnerable situation. We believe in a fair and ethical approach to debt collection, ensuring that those who genuinely cannot pay or are in a precarious position are treated with the necessary care and consideration.
