Property Debt Collection will issue correspondence and attempt to collect outstanding arrears for a fixed fee. For the cases that require legal action, a letter in accordance with the Pre Action protocol will be issued by Property Debt Collection along with a court fee request.
Once a court fee has been received Property Debt Collection will instruct PDC Law to prepare claim forms and obtain a County Court Judgment. Where necessary, PDC Law will instruct Counsel to attend hearings in the County Court and/ or First Tier Tribunal.
Once a judgment has been obtained, the case will be returned to Property Debt Collection who will endeavour to collect payment directly from the owner or their mortgagee.
Should payment not be forthcoming or where there is no mortgagee; PDC Law will write to you, identify other possible methods of enforcement and await your instructions.
Unlike most solicitors we charge a fixed fee for our service. This amount is collected directly from the tenant.
You will only be asked to pay a court fee if it’s needed, that’s it. This sum is set by the court and will vary dependant on the level of arrears you are trying to claim.
We won't charge you.
It is rare, but in a very small number of cases you may be asked to pay Property Debt Collection or PDC Laws fees if:
None, we have ensured our solicitors PDC Law work on a no win no fee basis
PDC Law will limit their costs to the sum recoverable under a judgment or order
No, you will not be expected to pay counsels fee. PDC Law will be responsible for paying counsel their fees.
If the court fee is awarded by the court we will approach the defendant/defendants mortgagee for payment
We will notify you of potential enforcement options and upon your instruction commence enforcement. You will not be asked to make payment for any enforcement method.
Cases where we are asked to cease action for whatever reason or cases where you do not follow the advice we have given.
