Are you in a position where someone owes you money, however is struggling with their finances and you don’t know the best way to proceed?

This is not an uncommon situation to be in and one way that you may have not yet considered is offering a payment plan.

Payment plans may offer a palatable solution to all parties involved. It allows the debtor to pay what is affordable to them over a longer period of time and saves the creditor spending money obtaining a money judgment that they may struggle to enforce. It may avoid ruining any relationship between the parties.

At Debenhams Ottaway, we would always advise having any agreement in writing and signed by both parties. If you would like any assistance with this, please contact us, we are happy to help!
