Debt recovery resolved.
What can you do?
If someone owes you money or will not return property owned by you, there are different ways you can try and recover it.
You can: Talk about it – You should try to sort it out with the person who owes you money and come to an agreement. A Community Justice Centre can assist by providing free mediation to help you reach an agreement.
This can result in a better, faster and cheaper outcome than if you decide to take the matter to court.
Send a letter of demand – If talking about it doesn’t work, you can write a letter to the person who owes you money or has your property. Include in the letter:
- how much they owe you and what it is for (or details of the property to be returned)
- what steps you have taken to recover the money (or property)
- when you want the debt paid or the property returned, and
- and what action you will take if it is not paid
This may be enough to get the person to make arrangements to pay or return the property, rather than going to court.
Take legal action – If you still cannot reach an agreement you can consider taking legal action to recover the money or property.
