At KD Law we undertake debt collection and enforcement of all types of debt proceedings. We are experienced in all types of enforcement from initial demand letters, to instructing High court enforcement officers, issuing of statutory demands, bankruptcy petitions and Third-Party debt proceedings.

These costs apply where your claim is in relation to an unpaid invoice which is not disputed and enforcement action is not needed. If the other party disputes your claim at any point, we will discuss any further work required and provide you with revised advice about costs if necessary, which could be on a fixed fee (e.g. if a one off letter is required), or an hourly rate if more extensive work is needed.
