Why Send a Solicitors Letter Before Action?
Before Issuing Court proceedings you are required to send a formal letter requesting payment of your debt.
The process begins with a formal Letter Before Action (LBA) to give your Debtor one last chance to make payment. You’ll need to send a Letter Before Action even if you have already written to the Debtor about the problem.
What Information Do I Need To Provide?
We will provide you with a Letter Before Action Instruction Form which asks you to complete all relevant details relating to your Debtor and the outstanding debt. Click here to complete the Letter Before Action Instruction Form. The letter to your Debtor sets out the amount of the Debt and the deadline required for either payment or a response to be received.
When Do We Send Out A Letter Before Action?
Providing we receive your instructions before 4.00 pm, Monday-Friday we will process your LBA that same day.
Will the Money Be Paid To You or Us?
The Letter Before Action requests that the payment is made directly to you, the Client.
What Happens Next?
In the majority of cases the Letter Before Action is sufficient to obtain payment from the Debtor without recourse to further legal proceedings.
What Happens If You Don’t Receive Payment
Upon expiration of the letter we will contact you to establish if payment has been received or if you require us to take further action.
How Much Does It Cost To Send a Letter Before Action?
A Standard Letter Before Action can cost you as little as £1.95 plus VAT.
