Debt Recovery - Letter of Claim
An estate agent was instructed by a vendor to sell their house, they signed the relevant paperwork confirming that upon a successful sale of the property they would be required to pay a fee of 2% of the sale price which equated to ?2,350 plus VAT.
The debtor failed to pay the invoice and we were instructed to send a letter before action informing the vendor that proceedings would be brought against them. They ignored this letter and court proceedings were commenced.
The court papers were served upon them. They failed to file a defence with the court. As a result summary judgment was entered against them.
A copy of the Judgment was sent to the debtor with a letter confirming that should they fail to pay the debt we would instruct bailiffs to attend the property. A cheque for the full amount along with interest and fixed costs was sent by debtor.
